Liv­ing a heart-healthy life can also re­duce your risk of de­men­tia. French re­searchers took the Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion’s ‘Life’s Sim­ple 7’ met­rics – which lower the risk of heart dis­ease and in­clude ex­er­cis­ing reg­u­larly, hav­ing a healthy BMI and not smok­ing – and in­ves­ti­gated their im­pact on de­men­tia risk. The study, pub­lished in JAMA, found that for each met­ric peo­ple suc­cess­fully ful­filled, they re­duced their risk of de­men­tia by 10 per cent.
