Regular hearing checks, seven hours of sleep a night and more exercise are among 12 lifestyle factors that could slash a person's chances of dementia by up to 40 per cent

In 2020, the Lancet Commission concluded up to 40 per cent of cases could be prevented or delayed by targeting 12 modifiable risk factors, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, physical inactivity, excess alcohol intake and smoking.

Hearing loss, for example, has been linked to five modifiable risk factors – including social isolation, depression, physical inactivity/obesity and brain injuries from falls.

Scientists hope that by raising awareness of risk factors – which change as we age – people can take steps to reduce their chances of getting the disease.

Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a range of progressive neurological disorders (those affecting the brain) which impact memory, thinking and behaviour.
