Diseases of Central Nervous system
About 5-8% of all people over the age of 65 have some form of dementia, and this number doubles every five years above that age. Dementia is the loss of mental ability, severe enough to interfere with people's every life and Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia in aging people.
A. Do's and Do Not's list
1. Mediterranean diet
If you are typical American dieter, you are at increased risk for the development of dementia when you get older as the diet is classified as one of the most unhealthy diet in the existence, according to studies. Mediterranean diet, high monounsaturated fatty acids energy intake appeared to be associated with a high protection against cognitive decline and reduced the prevalence of AD in older people(208). Also recent research supports the hypothesis of calorie intake, among other non-genetic factors, in influence of the risk of clinical dementia.(209).
Senile dementia is the mental deterioration, i.e, loss of intellectual ability associated with old age. Yoga is believed to have beneficial effects on cognition, probaby through attenuation of emotional intensity and stress reduction. Yoga participation showed to improve the memory performance, and all other psychophysiological parameters, in patient with dementia(3), including intellect, attention, thinking, comprehension and personality, with preservation of normal level of consciousness(210), according to G.J. Patel Ayurved College.
3. Aging of theory of mind
According to Aging of theory of mind, educational level and cognitive processing are two factors influencing the pattern of the aging.Younger and older group with equally high education outperformed the older group with less education in false-belief and faux-pas tasks, with younger group outperformed the other two groups in the cognitive processing tasks, according to Anhui Medical University(211)
3. Moderate alcohol drinking
Moderate alcohol drinking of less than 2 cups for men and 1 cups for women are said to offers possible health benefits(3), but Binge drinking (ie, alcohol exceeding the amount of 5 bottles of beer or a bottle of wine on 1 occasion at least monthly) in midlife is associated with an increased risk of dementia, according to the follow-up, 103 participants had developed dementia(212).
4. Stop Smoking or never smoke before
Smoking is a risk factor for several life-threatening diseases, but its long-term association with dementia is controversial and somewhat understudied. According to a total of 5367 people (25.4%), heavy smoking in midlife was associated with a greater than 100% increase in risk of dementia, AD, and VaD more than 2 decades later(213).
5. Drink you tea and coffee
Caffeine in tea and coffee may enhance cognitive function acutely, but its link to dementia is somewhat inconsistent, but most studies support coffee's favorable and protective effects against cognitive decline, dementia or AD. Coffee drinking of 3-5 cups per day at midlife was associated with a decreased risk of dementia/AD by about 65% at late-life(214).
6. Eat you fruits and veggies
Fruits and veggies containing high amounts of antioxidant enhance the immune system in fighting against forming of free radicals cause to damage to the brain cells of that can lead to dementia. Vitamin E and vitamin C supplements in combination were associated with reduced prevalence and incidence of AD, according to The Johns Hopkins University(215).
7. Regular and moderate exercise for elder
Regular and moderate exercise may attenuate the cognitive dysfunctioning, but theirs' induced changes in cognition were not correlated with changes in mood/anxiety, probably through some separate neural systems mediation(216).
8. Avoid nutritional deficiency with balance diet
a. Beyond our believe, an excess of dietary carbohydrates, particularly fructose, alongside a relative deficiency in dietary fats and cholesterol, may lead to the development of Alzheimer's disease(217).

9. Avoid environment risk of dementia
Certain environment toxins produced as a result of industrialization or naturally have been linked to cognitive degenerative diseases. According to University of British Columbia, novel environmental toxins: steryl glycosides, a potential etiological factor for age-related neurodegenerative diseases, showed signs of mimicked ALS-PDC, including progressive deficits in motor, cognitive, and olfactory functions associated with neuron loss in the spinal cord, nigrostriatal system, cortex, hippocampus, and olfactory bulb in fed mice(219).
10. No illicit drug, please(220)
Illicit drug used may cause nervous system impairment as a result of direct and indirect effects on the integrity and function of nervous system tissue and, potentially, through immune effects, especially, up to 40% risk of nervous system impairment for patients with HIV-1 infection.
11. Prevent prolonged period of using certain drug
As aging, accumulation of toxins of certain medication used to treat certain diseases, such as antidepressants, sedatives, cardiovascular drugs and anti-anxiety medications may cause increased risk of cognitive dysfunction causes of dementia-like symptoms(221).
