Bloomberg News Needs to Work On Titles That Don't Freak Me Out, Please.

So this little pretty was published at Bloomberg News about brain shrinkage in long Covid, titled "COVID Can Shrink the Brain as Much as a Decade of Aging, Study Finds." The New York Times titled the story a bit more calmly, though still slightly alarming:"COVID May Cause Changes in the Brain, New Study Finds." The actual article in Nature is titled even more accurately, noting that this is an observation from banked bio-data in the UK:  "SARS-CoV-2 is Associated with Changes in Brain Structure in UK Biobank."  

Decide for yourself.  

It might just be that I'm a little touchy on the matter of not having the brain power I had before long COVID.
