Outsmarting Alzheimer's

The Wall Street Journal today had a story titled "How to outsmart Alzheimers."


The story relates how doctors are now trying to prevent the onset of Alzheimer's by using Cognitive Fitness and Innovative Therapies (CFIT) in order to keep those at risk for the disease intellectually and physically fit. The approach is intended to delay--hopefully indefinitely--the debilitating disease by challenging the potential victim through various exercises, diet changes and a maintained social life.

It's a worthwhile read for those who may fall into the segment who's at risk, or who know others who may be destined to get the disease. Delaying the onset of Alzheimer's, even for a few years, can dramatically improve the quality of life.
