By combining ten years worth of data published on Alzheimer's, Prof Brayne and her team examined the lifestyle factors associated with dementia in later life. The good news is that with regular exercise we can all reduce our risk of Alzheimer's.
Carol Brayne is Professor of Public Health Medicine at the University of Cambridge, and Director of the Cambridge Institute of Public Health. We are proud to have her as a member of the Research Advisory Board for the National Facial, Oral and Oculoplastic Research Centre (NFORC).
The research paper, "Potential for primary prevention of Alzheimer's disease: an analysis of population-based data" is due to be published in the august issue of The Lancet Neurology.
