Speaking Two Languages May Delay Dementia

New research shows you may want to dust off that French textbook. Speaking
a second language delays the onset of dementia, according to a study
published Wednesday in the journal Neurology. Researchers analyzed 648
people from India who were diagnosed with dementia and had an average age
of 66. They found that the people who spoke two languages developed
dementia about four and a half years later than folks who spoke just one
language, even if the bilingual participants could not read.
