Risk reduction
  • We know risk factors from population studies
  • Non-modifiable: ageing; genetic factors
  • Modifiable: low education, smoking, mid-life obesity, mid-life hypertension, physical inactivity
  • Healthy lifestyle is not a guarantee, but may reduce risk of dementia and many other diseases
  • Healthy brain and healthy body
  • Lots of overlap with other NCDs, especially diabetes and cardiovascular diseases
