Reading is the Best Way to Fight an Aging Mind

Congratulations bookworms everywhere! Science now says you are smart, not only for reading and the subsequent learning that generally comes from reading (especially when it’s reading for pleasure), but also for helping your brain fight aging.

According to an article published in Neurology (also published on their website), reading at a younger age helps slow “cognitive decline.” The conclusion of the study was that the more you read across your lifetime, the better your cognitive status will be in your old age.

Don’t be afraid of the brain like Fry is. You probably shouldn’t be like Fry in any way, if possible.
