People can learn about ways to reduce the chances of developing Alzheimer’s Disease at a special event in Huddersfield.

Research shows that simple diet and lifestyle changes could cut the risk of Alzheimer’s by at least a third.

The talk by Patrick Holford, chief executive of the Food for Brain Foundation and founder of the Institute for Optimum Nutrition, will reveal it’s estimated that only 1% of Alzheimer’s is down to genetics with the rest down to the way each person lives their life.

The event has been arranged by Huddersfield community interest company Creating Health for All, a voluntary organisation helping people in Huddersfield and Brighouse achieve better health and wellbeing by urging them to take more responsibility for their own health.

The talk will be at Northfield Hall on Norfolk Avenue, Sheepridge, Huddersfield, HD2 1GS on Friday, August 18 from 7pm to 8pm.

Director of Creating Health for All Dr Ailsa Care said: “I am an ex-NHS GP and now a functional medicine practitioner. I see every day how simple changes in lifestyle and nutrition make a huge difference to people’s health. I saw first-hand as a GP how the population was getting sicker and sicker over time and want to help slow down this tidal wave of chronic health conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease.”

Tickets are £6 per person and available from Eventbrite at
