This summary, published online today at Fox News, cites evidence supporting 6 lifestyle choices you can make to reduce the likelihood of cognitive decline.

Of course, there are no guarantees and bad genes combined with age can overwhelm even the best life-style.  Nonetheless, it is worthwhile to know the steps that might help, and to pursue as many of them as possible.

I suggest you click through and read the short story, but here is the list:
  1. Stay Physically Active
  2. Eat Fruits and Veggies
  3. Reduce Risk Factors for Heart Disease
  4. Embrace Cultural Activities
  5. Care for Your Teeth
  6. Challenge your Intellect
Remember, there is no certain method to eliminate all risk of cognitive decline, but doing what you can to stack the odds in your own favor seems like an attractive course of action.
