Saturday 11/18/2006 Cut Dementia Risk by Half!

A new study shows that Omega-3's cut dementia risk by half! The study, published in this month's Archives of Neurology, followed 899 dementia--free people for 9 years. Over that time period 99 cases of dementia developed, including 71 cases of Alzheimer's Disease. The people with the highest levels of DHA (an omega-3 fatty acid found in fish oil) had a 47% reduction in dementia!

If you live in the U.S, your chance of developing dementia is about 1 in 2.  By simply consuming fish oil daily you can cut that in half.  Add an exercise program, rewarding and stimulating service to your fellow man, and the herb Bacopa, and you have a recipe for a keen mind to last a lifetime!
