Abstract

Advances in the treatment and prevention of disease have contributed to an aging global population. Subsequently, there is an increasing prevalence of age-related conditions, such as dementia. There are currently no disease-modifying therapies commercially available, and there is a growing emphasis on strategies to prevent dementia. We have reviewed the relevant literature pertaining to dementia risk and putative prevention factors. We present our findings by summarizing the pertinent items that may play a role in prevention and conclude our recommendations at this time.
