Reading Russian Classics May Prevent Alzheimer's Disease
Leo Tolstoy

The World Health Organization has recognized Alzheimer's disease (dementia) a very serious problem along with cardiovascular and oncological diseases.

      According to experts’ forecasts, 115 million people in the world will suffer from senile dementia by 2050.

      As assessed by medics around 1,5- 2 million people in Russia suffer from Alzheimer's disease today.

      Russian doctors consider that it is much simpler to find prevention methods for dementia in time, than fight against its consequences which are practically intractable.

      Good prevention of the disease is reading and cheerful approach to life. According to Svetlana Duma, the head of the Novosibirsk Dementia Control Center, reading classics reduces risk of weak-mindedness in old age: “People that lose taste for reading, make a step towards dementia”.
