It should be no surprise that the same dietary recommendations for brain health are the same for heart health and risk reduction for cancer, diabetes and a host of other chronic diseases. So what makes it so hard for folks to try their best to ditch sweets, junk and processed foods and eat basic, wholesome foods in “nature’s wrapper”?

I recently attended a seminar on dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, which I know with the prevalence seeming to grow concerns most of us. Studies show that lifestyle, not genes, account for about 70 percent of the predictors of who will live successfully to 100 without any symptoms of dementia. I often hear people blame family history and genes for their chronic diseases; although it can be a factor, it is not an absolute and may very well be preventable with lifestyle management.
