I am sometimes worried about my parents getting Alzheimer's one day or even getting it myself one day! I am always researching the latest information from scientists.
A study published on February 10, 2022, from PLOS Genetics, shows that getting enough sleep every night can lower your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
The study is a little tough to understand but basically it involves our circadian rhythm.
Here is a video that explains it (some of the words are not easy to understand, but you will get the point, just go with it!) click
Here are the important things:
- get your sleep
- go to bed at the same time everyday
- keep away from screens for at least an hour before bedtime
- avoid caffeine (chocolate, bubble tea, etc for us kids) 2 hrs before bedtime
