Check Your Brain Care Score to Lower Dementia and Stroke Risks, Says New Study

A recent study introduces the Brain Care Score (BCS), a tool assessing dementia and stroke risks based on 12 health factors.

The 21-point BCS, covering physical, lifestyle, and social-emotional aspects, shows that higher scores correlate with lower risks.

Recommendations align with heart health guidelines, emphasizing the connection between brain and overall well-being.

The study, responding to a growing “brain health crisis,” reveals that improving BCS elements benefits overall health.

Early findings suggest a 59% lower dementia risk for those under 50 with a five-point higher score. While benefits decrease with age, improving BCS over time could reduce long-term risks.

The tool aims to empower individuals to proactively manage brain health. Learn more about the study on CNN.
