Boost brain by read­ing more

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

THE NSW Pre­mier’s Read­ing Chal­lenge is an ex­cel­lent in­cen­tive to read (“Page opens on new world”, The Stan­dard, July 20).

Many years ago I was told this: “Read­ing is brain food.”

I be­lieve these are very true words.

Our pre­cious brain needs pro­tec­tion from go­ing lazy, read­ing rub­bish and filth.

Our brain con­trols the whole body – hurt (in­jure) the brain, hurt (in­jure) the body.

So good old-fash­ioned read­ing is a healthy y brain ac­tiv­ity. It’s so very good for us all. Dave Vin­cent, Bid­will

St Marys needs more shops and a bet­ter food court. Ni­cole O’Flynn, via Face­book
