and cardiovascular health improved, while the rate of dementia fell.the average age for when dementia was diagnosed also increased, from 80 at the beginning of the study to 85 at the end, and the overall prevalence of the disease dropped by 44 percent. interestingly, the health improvements were only found among those who had high school degrees. there wasn't strong evidence that getting a college education lowered the risk even more, but the study also included relatively few http://www.nytimes. com/2016/02/11/he alth/education-may- cut-dementia-risk- study-finds.html college-educated participants. as for why education seems to lower the risk of dementia, there are a couple theories. one is education creates more connections in the brain. another is it leads to higher incomes, which allows for access to better nutrition. combating the condition could prove less expensive than previously thought, as the enforcement of mandatory high school attendance has gotten stronger over time.the researchers say http://www.nytimes. com/2016/02/11/he cut-dementia-risk- study-finds.html the sheer number of dementia cases will increase for at least a while, though, because much of the "baby boomer" generation hasn't yet reached the average age watch newsy 24-7 on your tv or download the newsy app for on updates that study took a broad look at patients suffering from all kinds of dementia ... including alzheimer's disease. rates are falling ... the number of people with

"the story that we got now was the dog stopped eating three weeks ago -- they never took it to the vet to find out why. then, she went to stay with her mother for a week and the gentleman was supposed to take care of the dog and in a whole week's time he admitted that he had only been there three times to look after the dog -- and each three times it was just to give it food and water and be out the door again."
