Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) has published the World Alzheimer Report 2014, entitled “Dementia and Risk Reduction: An analysis of protective and modifiable factors” which examines the evidence on modifiable risk factors for dementia. It shows that dementia risks can be reduced by adopting the broad-ranging prevention strategies listed earlier in the Blackfriars Consensus. There is a focus on:
“…potential modifiable risk factors in four key domains: developmental, psychological and psychosocial, lifestyle and cardiovascular conditions. The report makes recommendations to drive public health campaigns and disease prevention strategies”.
