Brain Exercises Can
Help Make Your Mind Younger - ABC News Program 20/20 Interview Dr. Oz
and Roisen - Nintendo Real Brain Age Game
June 25th 2006
Brain age has become a very popular topic of discussion now days,
especially with the popularity of the Nintendo Brain Age Game. The
company says you can train your mind to function better (or younger) in
just minutes a day.
The ABC News program 20/20 recently asked the question: “A lot of people
believe that we use only 10 percent of our brain. Is that true?”
According to Dr. Mehmet Oz, co author of "You: The Owner's Manual",
"It's not true. In fact, you'd be in big trouble if you only used 10
percent. The reality is that we use all of our brain, but we don't use
it all the time."
Most experts agree that memory exercises can help keep your mind nimble
and young, so to speak. According to Dr. Oz, about three quarters of all
humans will experience some sort of loss of mental acuity starting at
the age of 40. The news program says it is not Alzheimer’s disease, but
just “middle age memory loss”.
