Tony Robinson on his strict lifestyle plan to help prevent Dementia after parents’ death

Alzheimer’s is the most common form of Dementia, affecting around 850,000 people in the UK.

According to the NHS, there’s no way to prevent all types of Dementia, as researchers are still investigating how the condition develops.

However, there’s good evidence that a healthy lifestyle can help reduce the risk of developing it when you’re older.

Experts have also suggested following a balanced diet, keeping alcohol within recommended limits and keeping blood pressure at a healthy level could help lower the risk.

According to Alzheimers.org, the majority of Dementia is not inherited by children and grandchildren. In rarer types of the disease, there may be a strong genetic link, but these are only a tiny proportion of overall cases of Dementia.
