Remember the time when it was said that technology was the worst thing that happened to human beings. Well scientists from the journal PLOS ONE have concluded that technology is making people age slower, after discovering that the brains of middle-aged people are getting sharper and younger to keep up with the demands of modern technology.
People over the age of 50 are scoring increasingly higher on tests of cognitive function, what it appeared to be a bad sign for learning. It seems as though technology is now playing a key role in the development process of older people. The average person now remembers up to 10 passwords for daily activities, such as banking, shopping, and email checking.

A new study also concluded that video games were not such a bad idea after all, especially when these video games require great thinking and analytical skills.
With the rise of technology as a whole, the older population are in much need of embracing technology since their jobs, demands them too. But with the advance of new technology and the introduction of new electronics, there is a link found to fewer outdoor activates which leads to obesity.
The University of Aberdeen and NHS Grampian found that the IQ scores of people born in 1946 was much higher than those born in 1921, which helps to the conclusion that technology is making age slower.
