This news comes from my new favorite blog, This Chair Rocks, by Ashton Applewhite. There’s a link below to read the entire article and I hope you will, but, in a nutshell, it says that dementia rates for people over 65 have fallen from 11.6% in 2000 to 8.8% in 2012. These findings come from a massive (21,000 people) study of Americans, age 65 and older, all races, classes and educational levels. It was funded by the National Institute on Aging, and published by JAMA – the Journal of the American Medical Association. In other words, this is no slouch study.
