Keeping sharp - Part II

Saturday, February 13, 2021

Wow! I'm 66 pages into the 318-page book "KEEP SHARP Build a Better Brain at Any Age" by Dr. Sanjay Gupta. I thought I was inspired to healthier living when I read "Diabesity - The Obesity-Diabetes Epidemic That Threatens America--And What We Must Do to Stop It" by Dr. Francine Ratner Kaufman. I was, and I am. However, now that I'll be 66 in a few months and have watched dementia and Alzheimers take blood relatives and in-laws, I feel like I can't read and absorb KEEP SHARP fast enough.

Having recently observed, with helpless sadness, the decline of my precious mother-in-law...I feel that I am approaching a precipice and must hurry.

I urge you to read this book, if you are 30 or 80. Modern science and medicine have learned that these horrible conditions are often in the works at a young age, although signs and symptoms may not appear until decades later. Yet, there's some things you can do at any age to help prevent the effects.

    Having been very close to this in relatives and talked to doctors begging for advice I am always interested in new advice. So far the supplements don't seem to do as much as keeping active, even with games and puzzles etc. in the later stages. Thank you for the reminder and book suggestion. emoticon

    Thanks for the info. I will be 66 in April. We are close in age. I also am very interested in keeping my brain sharp.

    As someone who researches the brain and has had multiple relatives get bad dementia I'm also very interested in this! Prepare for the worst but stay active and keep your brain busy! I hope it helps you :)
