What is it about?

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common disease in developed countries and affects more than half of the population in low- and middle-income countries. In the past decade, studies have shown that biological and sociological factors have a significant effect on the occurrence and development of AD. Among them, genetic and environmental factors, pathophysiological characteristics, and unhealthy lifestyle factors cause the neurological symptoms. Among them, the risk factors of cognitive decline in the elderly caused by lifestyle can be intervened in the early stage. If some adults can overcome these risk factors as early as possible, they can predict that they will gradually reduce their cognitive impairment over time, and the likelihood of developing AD will decrease in the future.■
