Almost everybody knows somebody that has developed dementia.  The progressive loss of cognition and function can have devastating effects on the individual and their family and loved ones.  Furthermore, patients with dementia can develop personality and behavior changes that can significantly strain the function and stability of their personal relationships.

Currently there are no known ways to prevent dementia.  Our inability to prevent dementia is partially due to an incomplete understanding of what causes many of the most common forms of dementia, such as Alzheimers disease.

In the absence of clear treatment strategies to prevent dementia, a plausible next option is to try to treat or prevent risk factors known to cause it.
