Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Green Tea Consumption and the Risk of Incident Dementia in Elderly Japanese: the Ohsaki Cohort 2006 Study

Don't go down the route of thinking you can shortcut this by taking green tea extract.

15 Supplement Ingredients to Always Avoid

Green Tea Extract Powder
Also called: Camellia sinensis
Dizziness, ringing in the ears, reduced absorption of iron; exacerbates anemia and glaucoma; elevates blood pressure and heart rate; liver damage; possibly death 
And this:
It comes after West Australian man Matthew Whitby spoke to the ABC after losing his liver — most likely as a result of taking a protein powder with green tea extract and a supplement containing garcinia cambogia

Abstract

Objective

Biological studies have shown that certain components of green tea may have protective effects on neurocognition. However, because of the lack of human epidemiological studies, the impact of green tea consumption on the incidence of dementia has never been confirmed. The objective of this cohort study was to clarify the association between green tea consumption and incident dementia.

Design

A 5.7-year prospective cohort study

Measurements

Using a questionnaire, information on daily green tea consumption and other lifestyle factors was collected from elderly Japanese individuals aged 65 years or more. Data on incident dementia were retrieved from the public Long-term Care Insurance Database.

Results

Among 13,645 participants, the 5.7-year rate of incident dementia was 8.7%. More frequent green tea consumption was associated with a lower risk of incident dementia (HR for ≥5 cups/day vs. <1 cup/day, 0.76; 95% confidence interval: 0.64–0.91). The lower risk of incident dementia was consistent even after selecting participants who did not have subjective memory complaints at the baseline.

Conclusions

Green tea consumption is significantly associated with a lower risk of incident dementia.
