Some actual “hard” science here and I’m talking about objective facts about the human body as official science currently understands the feared form of dementia so many older people fear, Alzheimer’s!
Lisa Genova in this 13 minute TedTalk reviews how the connections between neurons “plug up” and eventually can destroy the connections within the brain that physiologically account for memory.
Then after listing all the bad habits that can speed up that destruction, she reveals how to bypass those blocked connections with some active living! I like what she said because it greatly reduced the vague apprehension that nags me every time I forget where I left my keys, but she does say that if I left them, say, in the refrigerator, maybe I should be concerned.
