Brain games: Effective against Alzheimer's disease

A study by the National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) for over a decade revealed recently the benefits of brain games, against brain disease like Alzheimer. The result of this study launched since 1999 and published in mid-September 2010 took as target some 6,000 people over 65 years and has shown the beneficial advantage of such intellectual activities. And in this category, we all know that poker is also an intellectual game even if it's a money game. Practice such a game is challenging for the brain. Thus, the possibility of being infected with a disease like Alzheimer is reduced to 50% in people aged over 65 years, according to the first head of the INSERM Karen Ritchie.

She explained that older people who regularly play their neurons at least twice a week are less affected by dementia or degenerative neurological disease than those who practice such activities less than once every 7 days. Moreover, this study also shows that the benefits brought by game, poker included, and this prevention against diseases such as Alzheimer have no direct correlation with the level of education, occupational category or mode of life of the subjects even if they are smoking, taking alcohol regularly ... Moreover, despite its playful character, game is not just for children or adolescents. Everyone can practice it. Statistically, over 860,000 French people are affected by Alzheimer's.
