There are modifiable behaviors that may reduce the risk factor of Alzheimer's: vascular disease, sedentary lifestyle, depression/stress, and diet factors and alcohol. Kaitlin Casaletto talks about the benefits of an active lifestyle and proper nutrition. Then Dr. Joanna Hellmuth looks at how to decode direct-to-consumer interventions - dietary supplements - and the rise of pseud-omedicine for dementia. She explains that supplements may or may not be safe and that manufacturers can make broad claims without supporting evidence. Recorded on 05/21/2019. (#34778)
