Risk factors

Research has identified many risk factors associated with dementia. It's impossible to eliminate every single one; after all we can't avoid age, which is the most significant. While it is possible to develop dementia early in life, the chances of doing so increase dramatically with age. One in 50 people between the ages of 65 and 70 have a form of dementia, compared to one in five people over the age of 80.
