Alzheimer’s Progresses Faster in Educated People

Filed under: Links — rakhesh @ 11:00 am

Previous studies have shown that people with high levels of education are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease. The new study shows that the brains of more educated people can tolerate changes for longer periods of time, meaning signs of decreased mental agility typical of Alzheimer’s disease appear later. When those signs do appear, the disease progresses faster than it does in less educated patients. §

I’m not quite sure what to make out of this report. Does it mean more educated people have higher chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease? Heck, wow, that’s like the first sensible reason I have seen against not getting educated! Mom, Dad, I don’t want to go to school today as I don’t want to increase my chances of getting Alzheimer’s! Wooweee! :)
