Get married to reduce the risk of getting dementia
A new study says that being in a loving relationship helps keep the brain active and reduce the risk of memory-related problems such as dementia and Alzheimer's.
The research says that married people were over 30% less likely to suffer from memory related diseases as compared to people who were single.
It is because marriage helps both partners to live a healthy lifestyle such as doing regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, no or less smoking and drinking. Healthy living lowers the chances of developing dementia.
Also, married people may have better social relations as compared to single people.
The study suggests unmarried people to focus more on education and proper physical health to cut down dementia risk.
The research was done on more than eight lakh married and unmarried people.
