Alzheimer’s & Prevention

Alzheimer’s is slowly progressing every day among our old.  For most parts they say there is nothing anyone can do.  The Powers That Be, that is.  Well for me I believe there is a cure out there for it, just that folks today aren’t doing things that need doing.  Below are three things that if done would pretty well eliminate this terrible thing called, Alzheimer’s.  The last one, number three should be looked at real close.  If you don’t use your brain it is going to just shut down.  Things one should and could be doing is, Puzzles, Writing Poems, Problem Solving, anything that makes the old mind work.  Not easy things either, as that is what the problem is today.  Folks don’t use their minds for anything, they rely on others to do it for them.  Not a good thing folks, so get that mind and body to working.  My Opinion Only

These chemicals are easily absorbed by your skin when you take a shower or drink unfiltered tap water. (Does anybody really do that anymore?) A whole-house activated carbon filtration system will remove most or all of these toxins from tap water. risk will be significantly reduced.

#3) Exercise regularly
By exercise, I’m talking about both physical and mental exercise. Physical exercise directly contributes to increased brain function because it reinforces neural connections in your brain, which in turn improves memory and learning capability. Mental exercises such as working on crossword puzzles will also help to keep your cognitive function in top shape. (Use it or lose it, folks!)
