The article, which is now in the part of The Lowell Sun history, located behind a User ID and Password, says that:
Experts from King's College London analyzed data from more than 1,300 people with dementia. They considered factors including education, employment and retirement.OK, six weeks doesn't seem that long, but still, it points to the fact that being active, using your brain and interacting with other people, is important to keeping your faculties.
Researchers found that people who retired later were able to avoid the mind-robbing Alzheimer's disease longer than people who retired earlier.
Each extra year of work was associated with approximately a six-week delay in the onset of dementia.
