Hey! There's Hope For Me, Yet!

Not that I worry about being prone to Alzheimer's in particular or anything, but losing my mind is just about the worst way to go I can imagine.

Work 'may ward off Alzheimer's'

...previous studies have indicated that keeping the brain active can protect against Alzheimer's.
Research published last year suggested that dancing, playing musical instruments, reading and playing board games can all reduce the risks of developing the disease.
Dr Kathleen Smyth, who was involved in this latest study, said mentally demanding jobs may boost brain activity and help it to fight against Alzheimer's.
