With just a day to go until polls open in the Scottish referendum, and most polls too close to call, campaigners are making an all-out effort to persuade voters.
A new report has made the case for raising awareness about the way lifestyle choices can affect your risk of dementia later in life.
It points out "there is no evidence strong enough at this time to claim that lifestyle changes will prevent dementia on an individual basis". However, evidence suggests the following could result in a lower risk:
- Stopping smoking
- Improved detection and treatment of diabetes and hypertension
- Increased physical activity and reduction in levels of obesity
- Education in early life
A young American man has been caught trying to swim across a river to North Korea, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.
The report cites a government source as saying that the man was arrested while swimming across the Han River, which borders the two countries.
Dr Eric Karran, director of research at charity Alzheimer's Research UK, has welcomed today's report, saying:
Health experts are calling for a major campaign to educate people about how their lifestyle choices can affect their chances of developing dementia in old age.
Factors such as early-life education, blood pressure and smoking can all play a role, according to a report commissioned by Alzheimer's Disease International.
The report argues for a campaign with a central message that "it's never too late" to make lifestyle changes, and that brain health should be factored into other public health campaigns.
Alzheimer's Disease International said that a major survey of 8,500 people from six countries showed that many are not sure how to reduce the risk of developing dementia.
Changing the way women are tested for cervical cancer from a smear to a urine test "provides a simple method" all women can use, an expert in women's health has said.
Queen Mary University's Dr Neha Pathak told Good Morning Britain: "This provides a simple method - that they can just pee into a pot and send that off."
Thai Prime Minister and junta chief General Prayuth Chan-Ocha appeared to question the behaviour of two Britons leading up to their murder on the island of Koh Tao.
Apparently referring to Britons David Miller and Hannah Witheridge, he is quoted as telling reporters:
General Prayuth reportedly added that Thai authorities must tell “tourists when the safe times are to be outside. We have to help them understand.”
Which? executive director Richard Lloyd has said that its latest annual customer service survey should act as a 'wake-up call" for low-ranking firms.
Thai police investigating the deaths of Britons David Miller and Hannah Witheridge have released six Burmese nationals without charge after questioning, according to the Bangkok Post.
The newspaper reports that the six men were colleagues but appear not to have been together on the night of the murders. Three of them were reportedly seen drinking near the crime scene.
An unnamed police source is cited as saying that one of the Burmese nationals looked similar to the "prime suspect" seen running in CCTV footage.
