Preventing or reducing Alzheimer’s effect on patients has always been a medical issue that has puzzled doctors for decades and today a medical study has proven one possible activity that will reduce the effects of Alzheimer’s in patients or even help prevent the problem.
Apparently, according to the study, Alzheimer’s and its effects can be prevented or reduced by keeping mentally active and sharp. This can be accomplished through puzzles, games, mind tricks, and anything else that requires constant and complex though as it helps keep the brain sharp and alive. The study also shows that people who were incredibly mentally active as young children and adults are significantly less likely to develop Alzheimer’s in their old age
Both of these findings are great news as it means a reduction in the number of cases of a very troubling disease. Obviously this is far from a prevention or cure for the problem but doctors and researchers are always happy to have found any sort of link to a medicine or activity that reduced or eliminates a problem especially when it is something as significant as Alzheimer’s. Doctors have been telling seniors to stay mentally active for years and now it looks like staying mentally active is actually beneficial to anyone and everyone regardless of age so now is the time to get started so that hopefully down the line you can spare yourself the agony of a disease as awful as Alzheimer’s.
