Older adults who regularly use the internet have half the risk of dementia compared to non-regular users | PsyPost

“A longitudinal study of a large group of older adults showed that regular internet users had approximately half the risk of dementia compared to their same-age peers who did not use the internet regularly. This difference remained even after controlling for education, ethnicity, sex, generation, and signs of cognitive decline at the start of the study. Participants using the internet between 6 minutes and 2 hours per day had the lowest risk of dementia.”

Can we turn back the clock? Parabiosis research suggests yes | Forbes

“What if you could turn back the clock on biological age? What if, instead of growing older by the day, you grew younger by the day? New research by scientists at Harvard Medical School suggests this may be less science fiction than it seems. Published in Nature Aging, Bohan Zhang and colleagues discovered that old mice that have been connected to young mice for an extended period begin to “reverse age” and live up to 9% longer than their peers. Although still in its early stages, their work holds exciting implications for the future of aging and longevity.”
