Speaking more than 2 languages may be good for your memory

New Delhi, Feb 23 (ANI): A new study has suggested that speaking more than two languages may lower the risk of developing memory problems.

According to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the finding was based on analysis of 230 men and women with an average age of 73 who had spoken or currently spoke two to seven languages.

Of the participants, 44 reported cognitive problems; the rest of the group had no memory issues, reports

The study was conducted by researchers at the Center for Health Studies from the Public Research Center for Health (in Luxembourg).

The findings showed that those people who spoke four or more languages were five times less likely to develop cognitive problems compared to those who only spoke two languages.

People who spoke three languages were three times less likely to have cognitive problems compared to bilinguals.

In addition, people who currently spoke more than two languages were also four times less likely to have cognitive impairment.

The results accounted for the age and the education of the participants.

"It appears speaking more than two languages has a protective effect on memory in seniors who practice foreign languages over their lifetime or at the time of the study," said study author Magali Perquin. (ANI)
