“Research shows that lack of exercise increases the risk of dementia,” said the Mayo Clinic.
Moreover, excessive alcohol usage, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity can contribute to developing the brain disease.

Those who exercise often and follow a Mediterranean-style diet also reduce their chances of developing the condition.
