Can positive thinking prevent dementia? A new study from the College of London linked repetitive negative thinking and dementia.
Wisconsin Public Radio’s The Morning Show on June 11, 2020 featured an interview with Art Walaszek, MD, about the study findings. Walaszek is Public Health and Education Leader of the WAI. The conversation discussed the role behavioral health and positive lifestyle factors can play in the development of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. According to Walaszek, there may be a link between negative thinking and development of dementia in later life, but there are things we can do to be more positive.
