I AM reading the magazine, Vail Health (2015/2016 annual), specifically an article by Kimberly Nicoletti, “The Aging Brain.”
She interviews Vail psychologist Henry Goetze, PhD., who lists a number of causes of dementia and a number of ways to prevent or inhibit it. He suggests refraining from alcohol, tobacco and marijuana, especially when young.
“Young men and women should refrain from both alcohol and marijuana abuse. Both of these substances negatively effect the developing brain and interfere with memory.”
