There it was on the front page of CNN today: “Games delay, then speed dementia?”
Only, of course, you click through to the article, and the headline is different: Brain exercises delay, speed up dementia?.
What sort of brain exercises? Well, everything:
Activities that counted toward being “cognitively active” included going to a museum, watching television, listening to radio, reading newspapers, reading magazines, reading books, and playing games.
This stuff does matter — plenty of people will read just the headline, and move on. Why doesn’t it say “going to museums delays then speeds up dementia”?
