According to mental health experts, men who marry intelligent women are less likely to develop dementia later in life. It’s also a fact that single men die earlier than their married counterparts. Seems a good woman in your life may be the best thing you can do for yourselves, gentlemen!!
Lawrence Whalley, Professor of Mental Health at the College of Medicine and Life Sciences at the University of Aberdeen, recently discussed this amazing discovery at the Oxford Literary Festival. Dementia affects nearly 35 million people worldwide, with 7.7 million new cases each year. However, Whalley and others in the field, have found- through a series of studies- that keeping the brain active with intellectual stimulation can help to ward off the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Past research indicated that activities like learning a new language, crossword puzzles, reading, visiting museums- really anything to stimulate the mind and learn-could help to reduce one’s risk of developing the condition. But Professor Whalley believes that a partner who challenges and intrigues could play an even bigger role in cognitive health.
Also of note, the effect the loss of a family member, early on, can have on someones mental health years down the road. He explained to The Blaze, “Studies have shown that the death of a mother before the age of five is a very important risk factor for dementia in later life.” In contrast, good parenting as a child, education and a stable home environment all have the potential to work against the factors that contribute to developing dementia.
