Watching a lot of TV and having a low physical activity level as a young adult were associated with worse cognitive function 25 years later in midlife, according to an article published online by JAMA Psychiatry.

The researchers* examined associations between 25-year patterns of television viewing and physical activity and midlife cognition in a study of 3,247 adults (ages 18 to 30), using a questionnaire to assess television viewing and physical activity during repeated visits over 25 years.
