Catalyst - Dementia
Do you ever worry one day you'll lose your marbles? It’s the cost of us all living longer. In our 60’s, we’ve a one in 100 chance of dementia. By our eighties, it’s one in three. And what’s frightening is the feeling there’s nothing we can do about it - or so we’ve always assumed. In a must-see episode of Catalyst, reporter Dr Jonica Newby puts her own dementia fears and family history on the line to investigate a profound paradigm shift in our understanding of this devastating disease. We visit the scientists worldwide who are rethinking dementia’s causes, detection, and inevitably. And we reveal there are steps – surprising ones – every one of us can take that will hold back the fearful tide of dementia.
