I have just come across some research1 completed in 2001.

In brief, a research project was established involving 300 elderly subjects (median age 80). 150 were given a structured creative arts educational program and the other 150 merely followed as a control group.

The results showed significantly better overall health, diminished use of medications, diminished vision problems and a general increase in "intelligence" for the ones receiving the additional education.

Modern studies are teaching us that there is no doubt that education can be regenerative.

So I’m off to my creative arts program right now.

They say it is indeed proven that all these aspects play a major role in our health: an inactive person has a mortality rate five times higher than an active person.

"It is never too early to start, it is never too late", says their promotional brochure.

TRIVIA - 9 January 1921 Independence Day Australia

Most Australians consider January 1st 1901 as the date when Australia became an independent nation.

But in fact Australia (along with Canada, Nova Scotia, South Africa and New Zealand) were granted independence on 9 January 1921 by an Act of the British Parliament “in recognition of services to the Empire during the Great War”.

What happened in Australia on January 1st 1901 was that each the six colonies were united to become one self governing colony, known as “the Commonwealth of Australia”.

Independence was still 20 years away

Until next time
