Researchers from the University of New South Wales have developed a new free app which might help reduce the risk or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

BrainyApp was developed by Alzheimer’s Australia and Bupa Health Foundation to raise awareness of the risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia, and to help you live a brain healthy life.
"People need to start thinking about their brain health earlier in life. The changes in the brain that lead to dementia can start when people are in their 30s and 40s,"
Although the evidence is still developing, we are learning that there are a wide range of lifestyle choices and activities that can improve brain health, and which in turn may reduce the risk of dementia." -- Dr Michael Valenzuela, head of the Regenerative Neuroscience Group at the University of New South Wales

Most of the top notch Alzheimer's scientist believe that lifestyle choices can/might make a difference in the onset of Alzheimer's disease. This is a strong and growing belief.
I share this belief.
Let me make this simple. I would have given my right arm for a few more years with the lovable, real life character, Dotty. My mother.
I think most Alzheimer's caregivers feel the same way I do.
If good lifestyle choices delayed the onset of Alzheimer's by a few years it would be well worth the effort. Besides, sooner or later there is going to be a treatment that either stops, or dramatically slows the progression of Alzheimer's.
Current studies indicated if the onset of Alzheimer's could be delayed by five years the number of persons suffering from Alzheimer's would be cut in half.
Its worth checking out. Plus, its free.
Good enough for me. You decide for yourself.
I have no relationship of any type with Brainy App or its inventors.
