Delaying dimentia

Posted: Updated:

Speaking more than one language could delay the onset of dementia.      

Researchers in India studied more than 600 older adults diagnosed with the disease, and more than half of them spoke more than one language.      

The study in neurology found it didn't matter how educated they were, but those who were bilingual developed dementia, on average, 4 ½ years later than those who only spoke one language.
