In one fell swoop (Shakespearean meaning) – aging sucks. A study finds that older people are less likely to know when they’ve made a mistake. Listen-up fellow people with diabetes. This kind of applies to us, too. Diabetes ages us way faster than the general population. This goes for Type 1s and Type 2s.
The rule of thumb for kids is that your parents are always right – no questions asked. But what if, as you get older and become an adult, you start to realize mom and dad are making a few mistakes they don’t realize they’re making. According to a study, it’s happening.
In this “look away” test, both young and older adults performed the same. However younger adults were more willing to accept their mistakes whereas older adults were adamant they did not make a mistake.
Our eyes process information through our nervous system. What they see is projected to our brain and processed. As we age, the speed at which the lights turns-on when we flip the switch. The NCV, or nerve conduction velocity diminishes so slowly that an older adults may not realize it’s happening, hence their contesting their “mistakes”.
I wonder if this study had any credibility insofar as improving NCV? The conclusion seems to speak positively about the supplementation of gallic acid along with exercise. Why not? It’s not fighting city hall if you’re the gov’ner. Speak with your doctor before you go Guinea pigging this on yourself.
