    WINE could help to stave off dementia, according to a study. Antioxidants from the grapes may slow down memory loss and keep the mind sharp for longer. 1Experts say flavonols in wine grapes can help to keep the brain healthyCredit: Getty - Contributor Scientists at Rush University in Chicago said flavonols are well known for their health benefits. They are also found in tea, green vegetables, fruit, tomatoes and olive oil. Study leader Dr Thomas Holland said: “It’s exciting that our study shows making specific diet choices may lead to a slower rate of cognitive decline. “Something as simple as eating more fruits and vegetables and drinking more tea is an easy way for people to take an active role in maintaining their brain health.” Read more on flavonolsSWEET NEWS Chocolate protects your heart by lowering blood pressure, scientists revealDOCTOR BREW Tea is wonder drug that can 'slash cancer, heart disease and cut dementia' Nearly a million people in the UK have dementia and it is Brits’ number one cause of death.

    Speaking another language — even partially — could help stave off dementia by up to seven years, researchers suggest. Scientists believe speaking a foreign language gives the brain a workout, providing the mental stimulation needed to ward off cognitive decline. Unlike other factors thought to protect against the memory-robbing condition, such as exercise or a specific diet, language 'remains with us all the time', they added.  An analysis of existing studies found bilingual people are diagnosed with dementia five to seven years later on average than those who speak one language. Another study which looked at cognitive experiments showed the longer and more fluent someone is in a second language, the better the protection. Federico Gallo, from the National Research University Higher School of Economics (HSE) in Russia, said the findings suggest bilingualism might be one of the strongest ways to protect against dementia. 'We can take up and give up physical exercise, go on one diet or another, or change jobs, but language remains with us all the time, he said.  'We communicate, watch movies, and read books, and the...
    Forests of mechanical trees, with layers of discs designed to 'soak up carbon dioxide', could be built to stave off climate change, scientists claim. Developed by Klaus Lackner, Professor of Engineering at Arizona State University, the 'trees' are thousands of times more efficient than the natural variety. They are tall vertical columns of discs, each about 5ft in diameter and spaced two inches apart, covered in a chemical resin and placed like a stack of vinyl records.   This resin captures CO2 from the air as it blows over the surface, and once full, they drop into a barrel where the CO2 is steamed off and put into a closed environment. Currently the CO2 is simply stored - unlike real trees, which convert the gas back to oxygen. It is kept out of the environment but put to no other use, although other projects have explored re-purposing stored carbon dioxide. This could include using it to produce synthetic fuel, that can then be used in aircraft, reducing demand for oil and gas. Forests of mechanical trees, with layers of discs designed to 'soak...
    Sinenkiy | iStock | Getty Images The Social Security cost-of-living adjustment for 2022 could be the highest it has been in decades. The latest estimates from The Senior Citizens League, a nonpartisan senior group, point to a possible 6.2% increase for next year based on the latest Consumer Price Index data. In comparison, this year's bump to benefits was just 1.3%. Yet next year's prospective increase comes as seniors are already facing rising costs. Moreover, higher Medicare Part B premiums and taxes on benefits could also eat away at that adjustment. Now, The Senior Citizens League is hoping to do something about it. Last week, the organization sent an email to supporters informing them of its plans to petition members of Congress for new $1,400 stimulus checks just for seniors.More from The New Road to Retirement:Here's a look at more retirement news.

    Phil Noble – WPA Pool/Getty Images Former U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Anthony Gardner has a message for Europe: Help President Joe Biden succeed, or risk another administration like that of former President Donald Trump — or even another Trump presidency. Politicco Playbook interviewed Gardner as the president conducts a week-long swing through Europe — his first overseas trip since being inaugurated — that will conclude with a bilateral summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But Gardner says Europan allies need to get behind Biden where China is concerned, and to “think about how you can contribute to the success of the administration”: Gardner had some tough advice for Europe if they really want to avoid a Trump comeback: Give Biden a win on China. Not mushy assurances of cooperation or niceties about the change in tone from America — a tangible victory that he can use to neutralize Trump’s message. “There’s always that risk, that’s what democracies are about,” Gardner told Playbook, referring to a Biden loss in 2024. “That’s exactly why you in Europe should think about...
    (CNN) — Talking on video-conference services like Zoom during the coronavirus pandemic has helped older people stave off the effects of dementia, a new study has suggested.

    As part of our 30-day Health Kick month, leading science journalist Helen Thomson reveals some scientifically proven ways to boost brain power. By the time we’re 40, many of us will notice that we can’t remember new names. But it’s not that our brains are overloaded, as we might try to tell ourselves — in fact, our memory capacity is almost unlimited. Rather, gradual changes in brain structures, such as a reduction in connections between nerve cells, make the creation and retrieval of memories less efficient. As well as slowing down, certain other memory skills shift to a lower gear with age. Multi-tasking, for instance, becomes more difficult.  But it’s never too early to start the good habits that will help us in our golden years …  By the time we’re 40, many of us will notice that we can’t remember new names.

    A daily glass of wine or pint of beer could help middle-aged and elderly people stave off dementia and maintain brain power, a study has claimed. Scientists said that eight alcoholic drinks a week for women and 15 for men can reduce the rate of cognitive decline, leading to better overall mental health, word recall and vocabulary. And even those who drink a smaller amount of alcohol each week could benefit, their results suggested. The study showed that drinking once a day could help stave off the effects of dementia. It was based on results gathered from a survey in the US (stock) In the study, scientists analysed data from 19,887 people on their health and economic status from the US Health and Retirement Study. Each underwent tests every two years between 1997 and 2008 to show changes to their health by measuring four factors: Total cognition, mental status, word recall and vocabulary.  When the scores of the 6,010 low-to-moderate drinkers were compared to those of never-drinkers, scientists found the former was 'significantly less likely' to be suffering from declines...
    A daily walk while pregnant is 'good for the baby' as it could boost production of a compound in breast milk that helps to stave off obesity and diabetes in the infant.   Scientists from Ohio State University studied 150 pregnant women and new mums using fitness trackers to find out how much activity was needed to have an impact. They found that even moderate exercise was enough to boost 3SL - a breast milk compound which is linked to reducing a baby's risk of serious health issues. The team say this compound could even be added to formula to provide the same health boosting benefits to babies whose mums are not able to breastfeed.  Scroll down for video  Andrea Berardi breastfeeds her 5-month-old daughter, A new study found that regular exercise boosts the benefits of breast milk Lead study author Dr Kristin Stanford, from Ohio State University said previous studies have shown maternal exercise can improve the health of their children.
