Researchers have identified seven habits that people can adopt to cut the risk of developing dementia. The findings were published on Wednesday in the US medical journal Neurology

The seven habits are: exercising regularly; eating healthily; not smoking; maintaining a healthy weight; keeping blood pressure in check; having healthy cholesterol levels; and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. 

Those behind the research – based on a study of more than 11,000 people – said the healthy habits cut the risk of developing dementia, regardless of a person’s underlying genetic risk. 

Dr Rosa Sancho, of Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: “This study supports the idea that what is good for the heart is also good for the brain – and that this holds true even for people with a higher genetic risk of dementia.”
