DEMENTIA: NWHIC (Excerpt)
In addition, some preliminary
evidence suggests that estrogen; a hormone produced naturally in greater
amounts in women than in men may help prevent dementia. This had not yet
been proven, but is currently under study in the Women's Health
Initiative-Memory Study, a large nation-wide clinical trial directed by
Dr. Sally A. Shumaker at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine.

Forgetfulness It's Not Always What You Think -- Age Page -- Health Information: NIA (Excerpt)
Scientists are working to develop new drugs that someday may
slow, reverse, or prevent the damage caused by Alzheimer's disease
and multi- infarct dementia. In the meantime, people who have no
dementia symptoms can try to keep their memory sharp.
Some suggestions include developing interests or hobbies and
staying involved in activities that stimulate both the mind and
body. Giving careful attention to physical fitness and exercise also
may go a long way toward keeping a healthy state of mind. Limiting
the use of alcoholic beverages is important, because heavy drinking
over time can cause permanent brain damage.
Many people find it useful to plan tasks; make "things-to-do"
lists; and use notes, calendars, and other memory aids. They also
may remember things better by mentally connecting them to other
meaningful things, such as a familiar name, song, or lines from a
poem. (Source: excerpt from Forgetfulness It's Not Always What You Think -- Age Page -- Health Information: NIA)
