Why Men More Forgetful Thank Women ..?

a Man Forgetfull
You often complain about the couple who seem often pretended to forget the task that you give? For example, you ask her to make milk for your baby while you cook, and 15 minutes later you find himself still staring at the front of the TV? What's worse, he said you'd never ask her to do the job. Things like this happen very often. Strangely, he never forgot when I have to remember the last scheduled ball game that morning.

This fact is not demonstrated that the selective nature of memory man, but because men have a reason for its inability to compete with the things women do.

According to a new study, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), which usually appear as mild symptoms of memory loss, one and a half times more common in men than women. The study, published in the September issue of the journal Neurology, was attended by 2050 people aged 70-89 years in Olmstead County, Minnesota. As many as 14 percent of female respondents were found to have MCI, whereas the number of men reaching 20 percent. The researchers looked surprised by this discovery. Why is that?

According to study leader, Dr. Ronald Peterson, who is also director of the Mayo Clinic's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center in Rochester, Minn.., And member of the American Academy of Neurology, dementia and Alzheimer's disease is more common in women. Due to this fact, Peterson thinks women will suffer from memory loss problems earlier than men.

"We do not understand what the meaning of these results," he said. "Most of us feel that there are more women who have dementia, because they live longer than men."

But just maybe, still according to Peterson, the man suffered memory loss early. Symptoms are milder and longer, because they do not live longer than women. Therefore, they also do not live long enough to develop Alzheimer's or other types of dementia.

That men experience greater memory problems, Peterson estimates that had nothing to do with early signs of dementia. The possibility of this is due to vascular disease such as high blood pressure or diabetes, each of which can affect cognitive abilities.

Studies of Alzheimer's Disease Research Center also shows that people with lower education levels and are not married, tend to have MCI. "It really reflects the fact that a person with higher education is likely to have cognitive reserve and can compensate for mild memory loss better," said Peterson. While married people, he added, tend to have stronger social networks. This is the lifestyle factors that affect health is better overall.

So if you often forget where to put your car keys or glasses, do not worry that you are developing symptoms of dementia. "Some forgetfulness is also a normal part of aging," says Peterson.

No need to fret if you forget to call someone, or forgot to bring my wallet. We can all forget when it diverted attention, especially when we often do multitasking. But when you're always forgetting important information such as schedules to the doctor, a lunch date with friends, then you have reason to worry. Immediately consult a doctor.

Wow, I'm not sure if you really don't speak English or if you were high when you wrote this blog, but have you read it???

Better yet- ask 10 people who actually speak, read and write English to read it to help you out. I'm sorry but this is 1) terrible writing. 2) You also copied someone else's article written about this same subject (I just read it on another site, but in well-written English).

Why not just write in your own language? You'd probably be pretty good.
