It isn’t much use making sure that we have the healthiest body, if we haven’t also looked after our brains so we can go places and do things with our healthy bodies!
It is so sad when someone we know and love, changes before our eyes, and can no longer make simple decisions and be independent. It is as if they have died but their body is there looking the same – but the ability to communicate both ways has gone.
There is no point in worrying about “Will I get Alzheimer’s?”.
However, there is a great deal of point in doing as much as we can to stay ‘on the ball’.

Imagine the effect long term poor eating is having on one of our most precious assets!
