You may be able to help keep your brain in shape, not just the rest of your body. A large study in France suggests that delaying retirement and working until later in life may help prevent dementia.
Some other things the Alzheimer's Association suggests for healthy aging:
--Stay active. Many studies show exercise reduces dementia risk.
--Stay connected -- join a club, travel, volunteer. Social ties boost brain health.
--Eat right. High cholesterol may contribute to stroke and brain cell damage, while dark vegetables and fruits may help protect brain cells.
--Do mentally challenging activities such as word puzzles and other things that stimulate thinking skills.
