RUSH: Interesting headline here in the Washington Post: “Short Mental Workouts May Slow Decline of Aging Minds, Study Finds — Ten sessions of exercise to boost reasoning skills, memory, and mental processing speed staved off mental decline in middle-aged and elderly people in the first definitive study to show that honing intellectual skills can bolster the mind in the same way that physical exercise protects and strengthens the body,” but if you heard our morning update last week on this, too much exercise could lead to cancer now, and I had to call for investigations on this, because Big Exercise and Big Gym have been foisting on us this notion that we’ve got to get out there and work out and do all these things and people are going nuts with it, and they’re exercising too much! It’s an intricate process by which the research group has discovered this, but too much exercise can lead to cancer!
I’ve known that all my life, which is why I don’t do any exercise that’s not necessary, like walking to the bathroom or getting out of bed or what have you. Now… “The researchers also showed that the benefits of the brain exercises extended well beyond the specific skills the volunteers learned. Older adults who did the basic exercises followed by later sessions were three times as fast as those who got only the initial…” Look it, ladies and gentlemen, it’s a long story. I’ve highlighted a lot of things in it but I’m not going to waste any more time on it. “Short Mental Workouts May Slow Decline of Aging Minds…” All any of you people, if you’re worried about your mind declining, you’re worried about your mind — if you don’t know, ask family members. Sometimes victims are the last to know that things are happening to them, particularly mentally. So if you think everything is fine, just ask trusted family members if your mental capacities are declining, if there’s something about you that they seem to think odd or unusual — and if they say yes, it’s very simple. All you have to do is listen to this program and listen to me in order to get all of the brain exercise you need, and you can do it in less than three hours a day and you don’t need to mess with all the other exercises that are in this story.
