London: Want to stave off dementia? All you need to do is to keep your heart healthy, says a new study led by an Indian-origin researcher. Archana Singh-Manoux of the Centre for Research in Epidemiology and Population Health in France and colleagues from University College London have found that keeping one`s heart in a healthy condition is the key to avoiding dementia. It had been widely acknowledged that the brain`s capacity for memory, reasoning and comprehension -- cognitive function -- did not start to deteriorate until at least the age of 60. But, the researchers claim that dementia can strike its victims earlier than previously thought. Even people as young as 45 can start to suffer symptoms of the brain condition -- 15 years earlier than doctors believed. However, boosting the heart`s health by eating well and taking regular exercise can delay onset of memory problems, helping to stave off the ravages of full-blown dementia whichcurrently has no cure, the `British Medical Journal` reported.
