Does using a computer reduce the risk of Alzheimer's?
Scientific research indicates that the answer is YES!
is some of the scientific evidence that this is true: Alzheimer's Disease and Brain Work
additional research information, it is clear that computer use alone
does not guarantee
a particular person will not be stricken with Alzheimer's
the risk factors for Alzheimer's include genetic inheritance, diabetes,
high blood pressure and other physical conditions.
continuing use of our minds as in reading newspapers, pursuing hobbies
that involve us mentally, even being actively involved mentally with
TV and mentally challenging interactive pursuits (chess, checkers,
poker, gin rummy, etc) can be very helpful. Such activities
can often boost a persons resistance to Alzheimer's disease.
do not doubt the fact that computer use is extremely
stimulative to our cognigative brain functions. Lots of computer
use gives our minds a workout.
