A new CDC study shows a staggering increase in the number of teen deaths across the United States. The reasons for these fatalities are widespread, however, experts are alarmed and referring to the recently published report as a "wake-up call."

A recent study has shown a momentous increase in the number of teenage deaths across the United States. Rather than sickness or heart disease, these fatalities are attributable to traffic accidents, drug overdoses, homicidal crimes, and suicide. Experts in the field are referring to the rise as a “wake-up call” for America.

In accordance to a recent report published by the National Center for Health Statistics at the Center For Disease Control, after decreasing by 33 percent between 1999 and 2013, the death rate for children between the ages of 10- and 19-years-old abruptly skyrocketed 12 percent in the following three years.

A Chinese study found that older people who took part in intellectual activities, such as reading, playing games or even betting on horse racing, had a lower risk of developing dementia, or might delay its onset.

The study followed 15,582 community-living Chinese individuals aged 65 or older who were considered free of dementia. They were followed for several years.

Allen Lee and his colleagues, writing in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, said dementia was a major public health concern worldwide, and finding ways to delay or prevent its onset was now a key priority,

They set out to determine whether intellectual activity reduced the risk of dementia in older adults, independent of other healthy lifestyle practices such as regular physical exercise, adequate fruit and vegetable intake, and not smoking.

The study team found that daily participation in intellectual activities was associated with a significantly lower risk of dementia several years later, independent of other health behaviors, physical health limitations, and socio-demographic factors.

Active participation in intellectual activities, even in late life, might help prevent dementia in older adults, they concluded.
