DEMENTIA DEATH RATES ARE SOARING!
Good Monday everyone!
According to the UK medical journal Lancet last month, dementia and Alzheimer's disease have risen from the 24th leading cause of death in the United Kingdom to the 10th in the last 20 years. Dementia is now one of the top 10 (and fastest rising) causes of death. Not including the untold human cost, dementia costs the UK economy £23 billion a year.
Folks something has to be done. It costs 10s of thousands of dollars for every Alzheimers patient. With the aging baby boomers our healthcare system including the new Obamacare system will in no way be able to afford the way we are headed. And that is just ONE disease!
We must strive for prevention in our healthcare instead of waiting for disease to hit. Start by reducing your refined carbohydrate intake (sugars and flours), consume omega 3 fatty acids (fish oils), exercise, and read or do some other brain involved activity. Start up a musical instrument! Playing an instrument is one of the best ways to use both sides of your brain at the same time. Be sure to consume B vitamins particularly B12 as deficiency can be a cause of 8% of Alzheimers patients!
If you need help, we are here for you! It's your future, be there healthy with WellnessOne!
Have a blessed day!
