Doomed to Forgetfulness? 

New research indicates that high tonic levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, seem to cause memory problems (i.e., loss), and are associated with hippocampal atrophy. Considering that I, along with almost everyone I know, am pretty much permanently stressed out, and have been for some time, this is a very worrying prognosis.

As if we need more to worry about!!

UPDATE: Maybe if I move to a farm and talk on my cell phone I'll grow a replacement hippocampus!

Hello Blogger, thanks for sharing this info. I've been looking everywhere to find info about memory loss disease to share with my readers at http://memory-loss.com-infor.com. Your post this post is great.
