Believe it or not, the level of education is a risk factor for Alzheimer’s Disease. Although there’s no known causal relationship between education and the risk of Alzheimer’s and Dementia, studies show that low education levels are somehow associated. Other studies show that a life-long style of continual learning reduces the chances of getting Alzheimer’s. Constant stimulation of brain cells, such as gaining a new language skill or learning how to play an instrument, deters the development of Alzheimer’s down the road. Other risk factors include age: Alzheimer’s affects 10% of seniors over age 50 and 85% of seniors over age 85, according to WebMD.
