Is TV Turning DEADLY for Seniors? (Surprising!)
Dear Turapür Today Reader,
Think back – years ago – when your mother nagged you by saying…
“TV will rot your brain!”
Well, it turns out that your mom may have been onto something!
Because according to some new research, it turns out that zoning out on the television could cause some serious damage to this vital organ later in life.
But before you pull the plug on your TV, here’s everything you need to know.
According to a study presented at this year’s American Heart Association’s Epidemiology, Prevention, Lifestyle & Cardiometabolic Health Conference, watching more TV each day throughout adulthood and middle age can age your brain faster and put you at greater risk for cognitive decline later in life – including dementia!
So, what’s the connection between TV and your brain?
It all has to do with something called your gray matter.
Grey matter is the darker tissue of the brain and spinal cord that helps coordinate your muscle control, seeing, hearing, decision-making, and other vital brain functions.
Folks that have ‘higher’ levels of gray matter typically have better overall cognitive skills. Studies have found that a sedentary lifestyle (including extensive TV watching) can lead to a decrease in grey matter.
The study found that TV essentially “accelerates” your mental aging process by gradually lowering grey matter over time.
Now, this isn’t a reason to STOP watching TV. It simply means that you should balance your TV watching with other, more stimulating activities that are good for your brain health.

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
And the good news is, it’s never too late to start.
So, for instance, instead of binge-watching your favorite TV show before you go to sleep, consider reading a book or magazine.
Reading is one of the best ways to keep your mind sharp as you get older. In fact, studies have found that seniors who read every day maintain and even IMPROVE overall cognitive function.
This doesn’t mean you have to sit down and polish off a huge novel over the course of a couple days. Just carving out 30 minutes of “quiet” reading time is all you need to help keep your brain in tip-top shape (and you can still make time for the TV!).
