Thank you, Ontario Stroke Network, for this great visual video! I’ve had people ask me before why I bother studying dementia, as it isn’t one of the core diagnoses involved with neurologic clinical practice as it is has been boxed into the geriatric field instead. But THIS is why– dementia is very closely linked to brain health as is cardiovascular health. People don’t fit in boxes very well. Having a health lifestyle– doing all those things you know you’re supposed to do for a healthy heart like eating nutritious, balanced and portion-controlled meals and moving your rear at a moderate to vigorous intensity for 30 minutes every day– makes for a healthy heart and brain too, reducing your chances of not only heart attack, but stroke aka brain attack and dementia as well.
So, put whatever device your reading this on down, go move your tooshie and eat a spinach salad! Haha. But really, just do it.
