Bonus Material: 9 Things Your Brain Needs to Thrive Cheatsheet
1 person every 3 seconds across the globe is diagnosed with severe memory loss, dementia. It is a life threatening event. You see, severe memory loss robs us of our life, our experiences and our precious memories. Whilst this appears to be an age related issue, science is showing us that the disease processes start much, much earlier in life. As early as in your 40s!
But is this your brain destiny?
Well it’s all about reducing your risk now rather than waiting for the brain to break later. The Lancet (a leading British Medical Journal) in 2017 showed that with simple lifestyle changes a person can reduce their lifetime risk by as much as 35%. That’s 1 in 3 people avoiding this brain destiny.
Sadly, for some, their brain span is shorter than their life span. Is there no other way around it?
