Questions and Answers
Eat healthy. Your best defence against this disease appears to be in the food you eat. A recent study published in Alzheimer’s and Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association found that people who eat the recommended amount of fol-ate have a much lower risk of developing the disease.
Fol-ates are B-vitamins found in leafy green vegetables, oranges, legumes and bananas.
But, “Although fol-ates appear to be more beneficial than other nutrients, the primary message should be that overall healthy diets seem to have an impact on limiting Alzheimer’s disease risk,” said Maria Corrada of the University of California Irvine’s Institute for Brain Ageing and Dementia, who co-led the study. Antioxidant-rich foods are also extremely important.
Lead a healthy lifestyle. Things like avoiding tobacco and excess alcohol, exercising and staying socially active all are linked to a healthy brain, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. Supplementing with the proper purest supplements also help. Visit http://BR1.ExperienceBA.com and find out for yourself the benefits of proper supplementation.
“The major way we’ve reduced the death rate from heart disease is through lifestyle changes: eating better, exercising more, smoking less,” said David A. Bennett of Rush University in Chicago. “It would require a lot of people to change the way they live, but there’s no reason to think we can’t have the same impact on Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.”

Playing chess and other mind-stimulating games helps keep your brain healthy.
Exercise your body. As mentioned above, regular exercise is important for your brain health. “Walking 45 minutes three times a week for six months significantly improved mental ability of older adults with no dementia; a randomly selected control group that did stretching and toning had no change,” says Arthur Kramer, a psychologist at the University of Illinois. Supplementing when you do the walking routine habit (according to Research doing anything for a 21 day period may produce a habit) and supplementing make sure you are doing all you can. http://BR1.ExperienceBA.com.
Exercise your mind. “Just keeping busy seems to tune the brain,” says neuropsychologist Yaakov Stern of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. In a seven-year study of 1,800 older adults, Stern found that the more “leisure pursuits” a person had, the lower their risk of developing Alzheimer’s. Leisure pursuits included:
•Going to the movies
The key is to keep your brain engaged as you age. Try crossword puzzles, games like chess and checkers, reading, attending a lecture, volunteering or taking a class that interests you.
Avoid head injuries. Research has uncovered a strong link between serious head injury and Alzheimer’s. You can reduce your risk of head injury by always wearing a seat belt while driving, wearing a helmet on a motorcycle or bicycle and making sure to remove tripping hazards around your home.
Try to relax and stay positive. According to the Centre for Healthy Minds, elderly people who experience a lot of psychological distress (worrying, feeling insecure or nervous) are more likely to show signs of mental decline. In fact, one study found that people prone to high levels of distress were twice as likely to develop symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease after five years than those who were prone to low levels of distress. Supplementing with Brain Fuel Plus has been found by many to reduce stress and improve mood. http://BR1.ExperienceBA.com
Further, adults who suffer from depression have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s than those who show few or no depressive symptoms.
The Bottom Line
“It’s hard to prove a lot of these things, but I’m convinced there’s enough evidence that there is a cause-and-effect relationship,” said Gary Small of the University of California at Los Angeles, who developed a “memory prescription” for Alzheimer’s that includes a healthy diet, daily exercise and relaxation and memory exercises.
Indeed, clinical studies have yet to be performed to test many methods of Alzheimer’s prevention, but when the techniques are employed in a population, benefits seem to be found.
And, as Small points out, there’s nothing to lose, “We may not have conclusive proof. But the evidence is strong. And these are all healthy choices for other reasons.”

What do you think this means? I am only 13, I am not in a relationship, I have a crush but he is in an relationship, so is this just advice for the future? I believe in fortunes, horoscopes, all of that stuff, so tell me what you think this means. I only asked this because it had my lucky number on the back, 29.
“Part of Fortune
In astrology, the Part of Fortune, sometimes called Fortuna, is the most popular Arabic Part. Arabic Parts are sensitive points in a chart, and are calculated using specific formulas whereby two planets or points are added together, and a third planet or point is subtracted from that result.
The Part of Fortune is calculated as follows:
For day charts, Ascendant + Moon – Sun
For night charts, Ascendant + Sun – Moon
Note that a chart is considered a day chart when the Sun is above the horizon (occupying any house from house 7 to 12), and a night chart when the Sun is below the horizon (occupying any of the first six houses).
The Part of Fortune represents worldly success, and is associated with the physical body and health as well. It can be indicative of the career or vocation. The condition and placement of the ruling planet of the Part of Fortune (that is, the natural ruler of the sign in which the Part of Fortune is placed) is important to factor into the interpretation of this Arabic part. Worldly success and prosperity are associated with the Part of Fortune, and both its sign and house placement suggests innate abilities and talents–areas of life and qualities that are expressed naturally.
The Part of Fortune lies the same distance in longitude from the Ascendant as the Moon lies from the Sun. Therefore, if for example the Sun is conjunct the Moon in the natal chart, the Part of Fortune will lie close to the Ascendant; and if the Sun and Moon are in opposition in the natal chart, the Part of Fortune will lie close to the Descendant. ”
“The fortune indicated by this part is not necessarily materialistic or even tangible, though it can be. It depends on the sign and house location of the Part of Fortune. The benefit can be on the physical, intellectual, emotional, and/or spiritual plane of experience. In all cases it is through the cultivation and expression of this point that one will experience harmony and a sense of well-being.” www.astroresources.com/fortune.htm
“However, in the case of both significations one must keep in mind that no one indication in the chart, not even the Part of Fortune, can be taken by itself as a total indicator of any area of life. For health one must also look at the Ascendant, its ruler, the Moon and its ruler. Also the sixth and eighth houses as indicators of illness and death respectively have strong indications for health. For material prosperity one should also look at the second house, the tenth house, and their rulers.”
