Summary Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia accounting for up to 70 per cent of cases. After the age of 65, the chance of getting the disease doubles every five years. Given there's no cure, it's scary stuff. But mounting research suggests that Alzheimer's can be delayed - and even prevented. In this episode we explore how lifestyle choices today may affect our chances of cognitive decline in the future. From what we eat to how much we move, even how we sleep ... scientists are suggesting that the power to push back the disease is largely in our hands
