Poor health conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes are linked to higher risks. Many respondents reported trying prevention methods like supplements or crossword puzzles. The only research-backed methods include exercise, a good diet, limiting alcohol, and not smoking.

“We haven’t done a good job of getting the word out that there really are things you can do to lower your risk,” says researcher Donovan Maust.
