Dementia is a major issue, especially for the growing elderly population, yet there is no real cure. One form of dementia is vascular dementia, which is caused by lack of circulation to certain parts of the brain, sort of similar to a stroke. As of now, the best way to prevent dementia, as someone would prevent a stroke, is to remain physically and mentally active throughout life. By feeding the brain with knowledge, one might be able to ward of dementia.

“What I can tell you is this: If you want to keep a brain, particularly an aging brain, healthy, you need to feed it.”
