Scientists in Canada (where they speak both English and French) have discovered evidence that speaking two languages can help delay the start of Alzheimer's symptoms by as much as five years. PhysOrg.com quotes researcher Fergus Craik as saying, "We are not claiming that bilingualism in any way prevents Alzheimer's or other dementias, but it may contribute to cognitive reserve in the brain which appears to delay the onset of Alzheimer's symptoms for quite some time." It's a good reason to study a foreign language!
Researchers at have created an experimental vaccine against beta-amyloid, the small protein that forms plaques in the brain and is believed to cause Alzheimer's, meaning that someday we could be VACCINATED against this dread disease, along with our other childhood immunizations.
