    Eating right in midlife may prevent dementia later on, according to a new doctoral thesis published by the University of Eastern Finland.

    NPD opportunities galore in the food sector for people of that middle age?

    I could not agree more that brands (except the high fiber ones!!) are ignoring the 50+ crowd. In the USA nearly all TV shows are judged on the shows ability to attract the 18-35 year old target. Why? Advertising dollars of course. The recent “firing” of Jay Leno, the host of the #1 late night show, who has been replaced by Jimmy Fallon, who pulls the younger set as evidenced by ratings for the late night show he previously hosted after Jay Leno, is proof that that middle agers don’t matter. Its early yet, but it will be interesting to see what happens to NBC’s (the home to this particular show) #1 ranking. Will the oldies stay with Fallon or go to one of the two late night alternatives. I was loyal to Jay, now I channel surf…but at 54, they don’t care about me….
