Party More! Prevent Dementia!

According to a study reported by Reuters, socially active people are less likely to develop dementia in their geriatric years.

Researchers state that keeping a full social calendar and cutting down on stress can decrease the likelihood of dementia by as much as 50%!

An estimated 24 million people worldwide have memory loss, problems with orientation and other symptoms that signal Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

The number of people diagnosed with dementia is estimated to quadruple by 2040!

Quick! To the club!
