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.

also, any knitters out there have an opinion on how she's holding the needles? it's an article from the BBC so i assume she's knitting english-style - it still looks really odd.
