World Alzheimer’s Month
The international campaign by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) is every September to raise awareness and challenge the stigma that surrounds dementia. The impact of World Alzheimer’s Month is growing, but the stigmatization and misinformation that surrounds dementia remains a global problem that requires global action.

Did you Know?

Cholesterol-free can be bad for your cholesterol: Food labels may say that it is cholesterol-free, however, that does not mean that the food is good for your cholesterol levels. Trans fats, which are cholesterol-raising, naturally have no cholesterol but can be detrimental to your cholesterol levels. Trans fats can be found in many fried foods and baked goods. Trans fat, such as partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, and saturated fats are not good for your cholesterol levels and should be avoided as much as possible.
