Do you have trouble finding your keys? Can't remember names and faces?
The BBC News reports on a study to be presented to the American Academy of Neurology that concludes that people who keep themselves mentally active between the ages of 50 and 65 have a better chance of delaying the onset of dementia than people who watch television.
Reading, crossword puzzles, knitting, quilting are all activities that keep your brain active.
Spending a significant amount of time watching television, researchers found, may actually speed up memory loss. So if you knit, turn off the TV.
