He provides a 4-pronged approach to anyone who currently suffers with this.

Lee and Len then move  to discuss dementia, suggesting various correlations between dementia with diet and exercise. Len's passion and personal research has led him to give various public talks on subject, incurring 4100 miles of driving while doing so.

Interesting Note: Len also mentioned how he cycled 100 miles in a day only 5 months after having open heart surgery.
