Excerpt about research:

More than half of Alzheimers cases globally could be prevented if modifiable risk factors such as depression, obesity and smoking were eliminated, either with lifestyle changes or treatment of underlying conditions, new research suggests.

Even reducing the level of risk factors by a modest amount could prevent millions of cases of the memory-robbing illness, the researchers said. For example, a 25 percent reduction in seven common risk factors — including low education, obesity and smoking — could prevent up to 3 million Alzheimers cases around the world and up to half a million in the United States alone, the study found.
