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.

Chocolate intake and incidence of heart failure: Findings from the cohort of Swedish men

Pretty much a totally worthless piece of research. Nothing here to give to ANY FUCKING IDEA of the amounts to take, how long or the type of chocolate.  A great stroke association president would ream out these researchers. 
American Heart Journal, 10/12/2016
For this study, researchers assess the relationship of chocolate intake and heart failure in a large population of Swedish men. In this large prospective cohort study, there was a J–shaped relationship between chocolate consumption and HF (heart failure) incidence. Moderate chocolate consumption was connected with a lower rate of HF hospitalization or death, however, the protective affiliation was not seen among individuals consuming ≥1 servings every day. Methods and Results
  • In this study researchers conducted a prospective cohort study.
  • A sum of 31,917 men 45–79 years old with no history of myocardial infarction, diabetes, or HF at baseline who were participants in the population–based Cohort of Swedish Men (COSM) study.
  • Chocolate intake was evaluated through a self–administrated food frequency questionnaire.
  • Participants were taken after for HF hospitalization or mortality from January 1, 1998 to December 31, 2011 utilizing record linkage to the Swedish inpatient and cause–of–death registries.
  • Amid 14 years of follow up, 2157 men were hospitalized (n = 1901) or died from incident HF (n = 256).
  • Compared with subjects who reported no chocolate consumption, the multivariable–adjusted rate ratio of HF was 0.88 (95%CI 0.78–0.99) for those consuming 1–3 servings each month, 0.83 (95%CI 0.72–0.94) for those consuming 1–2 servings every week, 0.82 (95%CI 0.68–0.99) for those consuming 3–6 servings per week, and 1.10 (95%CI 0.84–1.45) for those consuming ≥ 1 servings every day (P for quadratic trend = 0.001).
