Perspective. The population of Earth is around 7.8 Billion.  For most people, it is a large figure However, if you condensed  7.8 billion into 100 persons, and then into various percentage statistics the resulting analysis is relatively much easier to comprehend.

Out of 100  : 

11 are in Europe 

5 are in North America         

9 are in South America 

15 are in Africa 

60 are in Asia 

49 live in the countryside 

51 live in cities 

75 have mobile phones 

25 do not. 

30 have internet access 

70 do not have the availability to go online 

7 received university education 

93 did not attend college . 

83 can read

17 are illiterate. 

33 are Christians 

22 are Muslims 

14 are Hindus 

7 are Buddhists 

12 are other religions 

12 have no religious beliefs. 

26 live less than 14 years 

66 died between 15 – 64 years of age 

8 are over 65 years old.

 
If you have your own home, Eat full meals & drink clean water ,  Have a mobile phone, Can surf the internet, and have gone to college , You are in the miniscule privileged lot.  (in the less than 7% category)

 
Amongst 100 persons in the world, only 8 live or exceed the age of 65

 
If you are over 65 years old, be content & grateful.  Cherish life, grasp the moment.

 
If you did not leave this world before the age of 64 like the 92 persons who have gone before you, you are already the blessed amongst mankind. 


Take good care of your own health . Cherish every remaining moment. 
If you think you are suffering memory loss……. Anosognosia, very interesting… 


In the following analysis the FrenchProfessor Bruno Dubois, Director of the Institute of Memory and Alzheimer’s Disease (IMMA) at La Pitié-Salpêtrière – Paris Hospitals, addresses the subject in a rather reassuring way: “If anyone is aware of their memory problems, they do not have Alzheimer’s.”


1.  forget the names of families. 2.  do not remember where I put some things 

It often happens in people 60 years and older that they complain that they lack memory. “The information is always in the brain, it is the “processor” that is lacking.” 
This is “Anosognosia” or temporary forgetfulness. 
Half of people 60 and older have some symptoms that are due to age rather than disease. The most common cases are: – forgetting the name of a person, – going to a room in the house and not remembering why we were going there, – a blank memory for a movie title or actor , an actress , – a waste of time searching where we left our glasses or keys…

 
After 60 years most people have such a difficulty, which indicates that it is not a disease but rather a characteristic due to the passage of years.

 
Many people are concerned about these oversights hence the importance of the following statements:


1. “Those who are conscious of being forgetful have no serious problem of memory.” 

2. “Those who suffer from a memory illness or Alzheimer’s, are not aware of what is happening.”

 
Professor Bruno Dubois, Director of IMMA, reassures the majority of people concerned about their oversights: 
“The more we complain about memory loss, the less likely we are to suffer from memory sickness.”


Now for a little neurological test:  Only use your eyes! 1- Find the C in the table below! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  

2- If you found the C, then find the 6 in the table below. 
99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 69999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

 
3- Now find the N in the table below. Attention, it’s a little more difficult! 
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM  

If you pass these three tests without problem: – you can cancel your annual visit to the neurologist. – your brain is in perfect shape! – you are far from having any relationship with Alzheimer’s.

 
We are truly blessed, So, share this with your over-55 friends, it can reassure them.
