Alzheimer’s Society ). All this makes the life of a person with Alzheimer’s much more difficult. Although there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease, studies show that physical exercise (or physical activity, in general) may play a role in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Also, a number of studies suggest that eating certain foods can help an individual keep their brain healthier, thus preventing the development of Alzheimer’s disease. In particular, such a preventive diet should include lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; it should be low in fat and added sugar. In particular, people who eat a “Mediterranean diet” are reported to have had a 28 percent lower risk of developing a mild cognitive impairment, and a 48 percent lower risk of progressing from this impairment to Alzheimer’s disease ( NIH Senior Health ). All this suggests that proper nutrition can help prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease. References

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
