Extracts from the Telegraph:
"People who have more than two alcoholic drinks a day develop Alzheimer’s disease five years earlier than those who do not drink, a comprehensive study linking the condition to lifestyle has found.
Those who smoke are affected by the illness two years earlier than non-smokers, while those who smoke and drink are likely to hasten the onset of the disease by seven years.
People who suffer from high cholesterol in middle age are one and a half times more likely to go on to develop Alzheimer’s.
The impact of lifestyle on the development and the advance of the disease, which affects more than 400,000 people in Britain, was disclosed in two separate studies presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology’s Anniversary in Chicago."
"Alzheimer’s causes loss of memory, personality changes and is terminal."
