Learning a second language will protect your brain!

Stave off mental decline by learning a second language! A recent study echoes Dr. Andrew Weil’s observation shows that “the best mental workouts I can think of are learning a new computer operating system and learning a new language.” (Dr. Andrew Weil on his website, http://www.drweil.com)

The “dazzled” researchers of the separate study concluded that “Bilingualism may help delay dementia symptoms.”

The study was published in the February 2007 issue of Neuropsychologia (Vol. 45, No. 2).

Dr. Weil adds that “you don’t have to master the language”to get the benefits. “It’s like using different software through the system. It’s extremely beneficial.”
