We can’t stop growing older but we can slow down the process of aging, including  the brain.  Being a  Baby Boomer myself  I have a lot of personal  and  professional  interests. In a report from Access Economics, the number of Australian with dementia will rise fourfold by 250  to 1.1 million.  Worldwide 80 million dementia cases ar predicted  by 2040.  So here are few useful tips to slow down the aging process including the brain:

  1. There is strong evidence that regular physical activity – just 30 minutes daily at moderate intensity – can substantially reduce the risk of many chronic diseases, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, cognitive decline and depression.1
  2. The size of portions, packages and tableware (plates, bowls, etc.) has increased significantly over the past 50 years, contributing significantly to the overconsumption of food and sugary drinks, a critical determinant of obesity. A recent Cochrane review shows that people consistently consume more food or non-alcoholic drinks when offered larger-sized portions or packages, or when using bigger tableware. It is estimated that eliminating larger portions from the diet could reduce the average daily energy consumption by 12-16% in UK adults and by 22-29% among US adults. 2
  3. The recommended adult intake of vitamin D specified by the US Institute of Medicine is 600 IU/day.3 A calculation error may have rendered vitamin D recommendations too low by a factor of ten, say researchers at University of Alberta4 and Creighton and San Diego Universities.5 Recalculation suggests that approximately 7000 IU/day from all sources is a more appropriate daily intake to reduce the incidence of diseases related to vitamin D deficiency.6
