Scientists have just found out (they're always the last to know) that Bilingualism May Keep the Mind Young

"Two languages may be better than one when it comes to keeping the mind young. A new study shows that being fluent in two languages may help prevent some of the effects of aging on brain function."

(I'd argue with the 'may,' but this doesn't surprise me. Look for future mind/body/society benefits of multiculturalism. BTW, regarding the old melting-pot's love for languages, anybody know who was the last fluently multilingual American president?)
