Researchers have uncovered what they believe could be two of the biggest risk factors for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
This cutting-edge, high-tech, three-month study… published in the journal Psychological Reports… reveals TWO KEYS that could put you directly on the path toward this disease.
Ready for them?
One is being old. The other is being fat.
Yes, old age and obesity can lead to dementia.
Who’da thunk it?
Here we are, in an era where this disease is on the rise like never before, in desperate need of new answers. Instead, these guys are hogging up lab space and burning up research dollars to confirm the obvious.
What’ll they think of next? A study to identify the color of grass?
This big waste of time wasn’t even a human study. It was a series of experiments on mice. Some of them were plumped up on a diet of junk and then had their brains popped to see what was inside.
The critters that aged on the junk food had more inflammation upstairs along with cellular stress levels that were off the charts. Even worse, they had insulin resistance not just in the body – which happens with plumped up mice and people alike – but deep inside the brain.
ESPECIALLY in the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortices.
Put it all together… and you’ve got a perfect recipe for Alzheimer’s disease (once again, in mice as well as people).
So, where does that leave us? Right back at square one.
We KNOW all this, and not just from mouse studies. Human studies find that age, obesity, and – especially – diabetes all put you on the highway to brain rot.
Don’t worry. I’m not going to leave you high and dry like these researchers. You can’t do much about your age, at least when it comes to the calendar, but you CAN slow the clock in your brain.
And you’re going to LOVE how you can do it.
Take a nap!
Folks who have a nap habit of about an hour a day have brains that are as much as FIVE YEARS younger than non-nappers.
You can take care of that other part of the problem by dropping a few pounds and – ideally – avoiding diabetes. If you already have the disease, it’s not too late. A strict low-carb diet can reverse nearly every major symptom and may help you work with a doc to cut back on your meds or even toss ’em in the trash.
You’ll be YOUNGER… TRIMMER… HEALTHIER… and you’ll LOWER your risk of dementia all at once.
