Alzheimer’s Prevention through Attitude
Are you the type of person that doesn’t want to grow old? Some people focus on how old and sick they’re getting while others fight aging every step of the way. For those of you who want to stay young, you may be on to something. According to a new study out of Yale, people who remained positive while aging are less likely to get Alzheimer’s. The researchers followed over forty seven hundred people, 26% of which had the genetic predisposition for Alzheimer’s. Those with the gene variant who refused to subscribe to the negative aging talk were nearly 50% less likely to develop dementia. This is completely in line with previous studies that prove attitude can affect gene expression.
