Here is a link regarding the TWO MINUTE ALZHEIMER'S TEST (which really consists of two separate tests which last one minute each.)  For anyone worried about Dementia and forgetfulness in old age, this is a "must read"!!!

Another excellent article is: "Keeping Ageing Brains on Top Form"

"A healthy diet, aerobic exercise and mental stimulation all helped to keep the mind young, researchers emphasised at a conference in Dublin. In contrast, prolonged stress and social isolation act to age the brain.....Advocating a "use it or lose it" approach, the scientist stressed that the decline in mental sharpness usually seen in people over the age of 65 is not inevitable, and can be stopped or even reversed by mental exercise."

So ladies, get out those word searches, crossword puzzles, and aerobic mats, and get those minds and bodies to work!!!
