Are you a pessimist by nature, a "glass half empty" sort of person? That's not good for your brain.
A new study found that repetitive negative thinking in later life was linked to cognitive decline and greater deposits of two harmful proteins responsible for Alzheimer's disease.
"We propose that repetitive negative thinking may be a new risk factor for dementia," said lead author Dr. Natalie Marchant, a psychologist and senior research fellow in the department of mental health at University College London, in a statement.
Negative thinking behaviors such as rumination about the past and worry about the future were measured in over 350 people over the age of 55 over a two-year period. About a third of the participants also underwent a PET (positron emission tomography) brain scan to measure deposits of tau and beta amyloid, two proteins which cause Alzheimer's disease, the most common type of dementia.
The scans showed that people who spent more time thinking negatively had more tau and beta amyloid buildup, worse memory and greater cognitive decline over a four-year period compared to people who were not pessimists.

In October 11 2021, the Supreme Court of Norway stated in their decision that Norway violated the rights of the Sámi people by permitting the construction of the gigantic wind farm in Fovsen Njaarke, the Storheia wind farm and the Roan wind farm.
The Saami Council congratulates the Fovsen Njaarke reindeer herding districts with this important victory against the wind power company. According to the Supreme Court decision, the license to construct the power plants, as well as the expropriation permit, are invalid, as the decisions made by the Norwegian Government violate the rights of the reindeer herding Sámi communities to enjoy their own culture, as stated in article 27 in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
