How's your memory?

Data from the United States, England and 11 other European countries suggest that the earlier people retire, the more quickly their memories decline.
It's from this New York Times article.

Your thoughts?

Although I retired early I think my memory is still pretty darn good. For example, I recall this: Memory decline associated with early retirement


Numbers is hard

Although rare, it is possible to read something on this forum you don't agree with and simply move on with your life

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension
