There’s no cure for Alzheimer’s disease. But that hasn’t stopped drug companies from promising the public they are on the cusp of a miracle drug that will suddenly cure this life-shattering disease.
Last June, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of the experimental drug, aducanumab for early phases of Alzheimer’s disease – the first time FDA-approved therapy since 2003.
Aducanumab was developed for patients with mild cognitive impairment and is intended to slow progression of Alzheimer’s disease (not just ease symptoms) – prompting many networks and mainstream pundits to tout the drug as a potential “miracle” for Alzheimer’s.
But here’s what you probably didn’t hear about the drug…
- An FDA advisory committee concluded that there is NOT enough evidence to support the effectiveness of the treatment.
- Aducanumab developer, Biogen, admitted that the cost of treatment will run close to $56,000 a year!
Fortunately, you have another option…
Seven, simple steps that could reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s by as much as 50%!
The ‘Simple 7’ Steps to Slashing Alzheimer’s Risk
According to a new study published in the journal Neurology, seven healthy habits – dubbed “Life’s Simple 7” – can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by nearly HALF (especially for folks that may carrying genes associated with Alzheimer’s).
These simple steps are (in no particular order):
- Being active
- Eating better
- Losing weight
- Not smoking
- Maintaining healthy blood pressure
- Controlling cholesterol
- Reducing blood sugar
Countless studies have found that every single one of these steps can help reduce INFLAMMATION –one of the major causes of Alzheimer’s.
Remember, there’s no simple ‘cure’ for Alzheimer’s (especially from a drug). But, this serves as an important reminder that living a healthy lifestyle could significantly reduce your risk of ever developing this devastating disease.
