 Even People In Thirties Are Prone to Memory Loss

Despite the fact that memory loss affects elders, as the average age of experiencing such lapses is 57, a study has found that it can start even as early as thirties.

In an online poll in Britain, 11 percent of respondents said they had started to notice their memory suffering in their 40s. Six percent had noticed it in their 30s.

The survey also revealed that the over-50s are plagued by the fear of memory loss and many have frequent and embarrassing memory lapses, the Daily Mail reported Friday.

Examples included leaving the house without putting on socks, forgetting how to spell common words like "hour" and even struggling to remember their own name.

According to the research, the 92 percent of over-50s do try to keep their minds and memory active. The survey was commissioned by adult learning website Love to Learn.
