The newspaper says that the number of dementia missing was 17,565 in Japan in 2020 and this is the highest. Most of them were found soon, but 527 out of 17,565 died in an accident.
As I am old enough and its candidate, I am very careful to prevent or prolong it. There are three things I am doing now.
One is to practice English. It is said that learning a foreign language is good for it and that few bilinguals have dementia.
Second is to play igo, a board game. I have been playing it since I was young.
Third is to sing karaoke. Singing songs is also good.
What are you doing? Nothing? You are a prime candidate for dementia.
