I’d add having good social connections to this list. IMHO loneliness and social isolation are huge risk factors. If you do the other things you mentioned, you’d greatly reduce your risk without taking an unnecessary medication and assuming the negative effects related to that.

Indeed. Social isolation is something that would have a great impact too. Also adding some foods that doesn't spike the blood sugar levels also would make a difference of course but then it becomes more tricky to explain as simple principles.

As an example of that... I just had a great lunch-first with noodles made from sweet potatoes and beef, perfect since my wife is Chinese and it doesn't spike the blood sugar while tasting awesome.
