Stave off Alzheimer’s by working or volunteering on the road

According to a study cited in a Reuter’s article, later retirement is linked to lower risk of Alzheimer’s. According to the study, “the research, based on records of people who were living and retired for an average of 12 years by December 2010, also showed that for each additional year a person worked there was an increased delay in the presence of Alzheimer’s, the most common form of dementia.” (The study was done inĀ  France – could it relate to wine?!)

They cautioned that the study showed a correlation, but not necessarily a cause/effect relationship, it could mean that increased mental activity keeps the mental processes from deteriorating. Good reason to work or volunteer as part of your RV travels! Jaimie Hall Bruzenak
