    How's Your Mind?


    Earth's Population Statistics in Perspective

    The population of Earth is around 7.8 Billion.

    For most people, it is a significant figure. However, if you condensed 7.8 billion into 100 persons, and then into various percentage statistics, the resulting analysis is relatively much easier to comprehend.
    Out of 100:
    11 are in Europe
    5 are in North America
    9 are in South America
    15 are in Africa
    60 are in Asia

    49 live in the countryside
    51 live in a city,

    75 have mobile phones
    25 do not.

    30 have internet access
    70 do not have the availability to go online

    83 can read
    17 are illiterate.

    33 are Christians
    22 are Muslims
    14 are Hindus
    7 are Buddhists
    12 are other religions
    12 have no religious beliefs.

    26 live less than 14 years
    66 die between 15 - 64 years of age
    8 are over 65 years old.

    If you have your own home, Eat full meals & drink clean water, Have a mobile phone, Can surf the internet, and have gone to college, You are in the minuscule privileged lot.
    (in the less than 7% category)

    Amongst 100 persons in the world, only eight live or exceed the age of 65!

    If you are over 65 years old, be content & grateful Cherish life. Grasp the moment.
    If you did not leave this world before the age of 64, like the 92 persons who have gone before you,
    you are already the blessed amongst humankind.
    Take good care of your health. Cherish every remaining moment.

    If you think you are suffering memory loss, read on.

    Anosognosia, very interesting:

    In the following analysis, the French Professor Bruno Dubois,
    Director of the Institute of Memory and Alzheimer's Disease (IMMA) at La Pitié-Salpêtrière - Paris Hospital addresses the subject in a rather reassuring way:

    "If anyone is aware of their memory problems, they do not have Alzheimer's."

    1. forget the names of families.
    2. do not remember where I put some things .

    It often happens in people 60 years and older that they complain that they lack memory.
    "The information is always in the brain, it is the "processor" that is lacking."

    This is "Anosognosia" or temporary forgetfulness.

    Half of people 60 and older have some symptoms that are due to age rather than disease. The most common cases are:
    - forgetting the name of a person,
    - going to a room in the house and not remembering why we were going there,
    - a blank memory for a movie title or actor, an actress,
    - a waste of time searching where we left our glasses or keys.

    After 60 years most people have such a difficulty, which indicates that it is not a disease but rather a characteristic due to the passage of years .

    Many people are concerned about these oversights hence the importance of the following statements:

    1."Those who are conscious of being forgetful have no serious problem of memory."

    2. "Those who suffer from a memory illness or Alzheimer's are not aware of what is happening."

    Professor Bruno Dubois, Director of IMMA, reassures the majority of people concerned about their oversights:

    "The more we complain about memory loss, the less likely we are to suffer from memory sickness."

    Now for a little neurological test:Only use your eyes!

    1- Find the C in the table below!


    2- If you found the C, then find the 6 in the table below.


    3- Now find the N in the table below. Attention, it's a little more


    If you pass these three tests without problem:
    - you can cancel your annual visit to the neurologist.
    - your brain is in perfect shape!
    - you are far from having any relationship with Alzheimer's.

    We are truly blessed, So, share this with your over-55 friends, it can reassure them.

    In any case, if you are over 65 and complaining about a few aches and pains, think again

    ........ 92% of people didn't even get that opportunity!!

    So be pleased with your situation and be happy.

                    I started to post something really clever, but walked into another room and forgot what it was.


                      Well heck I am 74 and guess I am still good. Oh heck I need to go check my chicken. I left it cooking.


                        Friend of mine referred to me as "seasoned and mature" and I had to think about it for a bit before I decided it was OK. And, I had to go get my phone to check the text so I'd get it right.
