Being bilingual rewires the fundamental structure of your brain - Quartz
“Bilinguals are a really a model of cognitive control,” Pennsylvania State University cognitive scientist Judith F. Kroll told Quartz, citing bilinguals’ ability to both hold two languages in their head and expertly switch between them at the right times. [...] If you speak two languages and have ever found this task to be difficult—choosing the “right” tongue based on the context you’re in—it’s because both languages are always “on” in the brains of bilinguals, as Kroll and other cognitive scientists have seen. In other words, the brain is continually processing information in both languages.

That is how crazy this is what current medical profession is doing. And policy makers, influences by food industry lobby listed on Wall Street. Defending their interest in selling processed, fast and junk food.

Why Are Progressives Great at Morality, Terrible at Messaging? - YouTube
The All New Don't Think of an Elephant!: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate by George Lakoff: tax evasion - tax avoidance = those people are the scum, the benefits of a welfare state ... financing public resources (infrastructure investment) ... private depends on the public!!! if private takes active measures to not bear the fair and reasonable weight they can afford ... than the public, anything that is provided for everyone, can not exist as is. [... you have to understand framing. how to frame x issue ... in terms that it feels/impacts everyone. every rational being seeing the issue at hand ... thus frame it in a moral and fairness / speak to the Gerechtigkeitssinn ... moral ... public resources/utilities give you freedom !!! < welfare state - ie abortion issue, birth control, reproductive rights is also about individual freedom - sex ed is also about freedom, kids making up their own minds, granting them the freedom to think for themselves - and not get their parents view. ]

How Exercise May Help Memory - NYTimes.com
What these findings suggest, the authors conclude, is that endurance training and weight training may have different physiological effects within the brain and cause improvements in different types of memory. [...] for the most robust brain health, it’s probably advisable to incorporate both aerobic and resistance training. It seems that each type of exercise “selectively targets different aspects of cognition,” she says, probably by sparking the release of different proteins in the body and brain.

The Benefits of Bilingualism - NYTimes.com
"The key difference between bilinguals and monolinguals may be more basic: a heightened ability to monitor the environment."

Researchers, educators and policy makers long considered a second language to be an interference, cognitively speaking, that hindered a child’s academic and intellectual development.

They were not wrong about the interference: there is ample evidence that in a bilingual’s brain both language systems are active even when he is using only one language, thus creating situations in which one system obstructs the other. But this interference, researchers are finding out, isn’t so much a handicap as a blessing in disguise. It forces the brain to resolve internal conflict, giving the mind a workout that strengthens its cognitive muscles.

Plus bilinguals are more more efficient using certain parts of the brain for certain task.
