Body #mass index, diet, physical inactivity, and the incidence of #dementia in 1 million UK women

..Fifteen years after the baseline survey, only 1% were lost to follow-up, and 89% remained alive with no detected dementia, of whom 18,695 had dementia detected later, at a mean age of 77 (SD 4) years. Dementia detection during years 15+ was associated with baseline obesity (BMI 30+ vs 20–24 kg/m2: RR 1.21, 95% confidence interval 1.16–1.26, p < 0.0001) but not clearly with low … Continue reading Body #mass index, diet, physical inactivity, and the incidence of #dementia in 1 million UK women

Low-Density #Lipoprotein Cholesterol and Risk of Hemorrhagic #stroke: a Systematic Review and Dose-Response Meta-analysis of Prospective Studies

..A previous meta-analysis of prospective studies published in 2013 showed that higher concentrations of LDL-C were associated with lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke. ..The results showed that a 10 mg/dL increase in LDL-C was associated with 3% lower risk of hemorrhagic stroke (pooled relative risk [RR] 0.97, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.95–0.98). The association appeared to be more pronounced in Asians (pooled RR 0.95, 95% … Continue reading Low-Density #Lipoprotein Cholesterol and Risk of Hemorrhagic #stroke: a Systematic Review and Dose-Response Meta-analysis of Prospective Studies
