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

Inquiring minds want to know. Is coffee or green tea better for dementia prevention?  An incredibly easy research project that our fucking failures of stroke associations won't ever answer.  I'm doing coffee.

Objective

Biologic studies have shown that certain components of green tea may have protective effects on neurocognition. However, because of the lack of human epidemiologic 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.

Methods

In this 5.7-year prospective cohort study, 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 (hazard ratio for ≥5 cups/day versus <1 cup/day: 0.73; 95% confidence interval: 0.61–0.87). The lower risk of incident dementia was consistent even after selecting participants who did not have subjective memory complaints at the baseline.

Conclusion

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