Work up a sweat if you want to stave off de­men­tia. A trip to a sauna could help, ac­cord­ing to a study by the Univer­sity of Eastern Fin­land, which found that peo­ple who heated up at a sauna seven times a week were 66 per cent less likely to be di­ag­nosed with the con­di­tion than those who only did once a week. Tuck­ing into a hot curry once a week could also be cru­cial, say Aus­tralian sci­en­tists who found that cur­cumin, a chemical found in turmeric, blocks rogue pro­teins that dam­age brain cells.
