When it comes to severe diseases, one thing which everyone would want is to feel safe and don’t get diagnosed with any of it. But in genetic disorders like Dementia, Alzheimer most of the times you can’t do anything in there. However, a new health study gives some hope, which shows that people who follow a healthy lifestyle have higher chances of avoiding genetic Dementia. The study proved that those people who have higher hereditary dementia risk, after following a healthy lifestyle reduced the risk of Dementia by more than 32 per cent.
Participants who had high genetic dementia risk and developed a very unhealthy lifestyle had more than three times the risk of getting diagnosed with Dementia. There are many health studies done on this topic in which researchers tried to find out the exact reasons behind Dementia and how to control it. However, this one proves the fact that following a healthy lifestyle is far right if you want to tackle severe diseases like Dementia.
In this health study researchers looked at the genetic risk factors data of various participants, and they accordingly categorized the risk of dementia of each person. After analyzing their lifestyle habits like physical activity, diet, smoking habits, etc., they matched it with the risk of getting dementia. It’s been found healthy people will have fewer chances of getting Alzheimer or dementia even though there’s a family history there. Researchers think working out, not smoking and drinking at a moderate level are signs of a healthy lifestyle. Those people who are following it are in a better health position, and even if there’s a family history of any dementia, they might overcome it. Some people, on the other hand, thinks no matter whatever lifestyle they follow, it’s inevitable that they are going to be diagnosed with dementia if there’s genetic history.
