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.
My back ground story is here:

Daily milk consumption and all-cause mortality, coronary heart disease and stroke: A systematic review and meta-analysis of observational cohort studies

Who the fuck cares about another stroke risk study? Especially using meta-analysis. Damn it all, start solving some of the problems in stroke you lazy assholes. A great stroke leader would make sure a smart stroke strategy was being followed. But never mind me, I obviously know absolutely nothing about stroke or where it should be going.
BMC Public Health, 12/09/2016
Mullie P, et al. – The meta–analysis of observational prospective studies found no evidence of a relationship between milk consumption and all–cause mortality, fatal and non fatal coronary heart disease and fatal and non fatal stroke.


  • A systematic literature search was performed until June 2015 on prospective studies that looked at milk consumption, all-cause mortality, coronary heart disease and stroke.
  • After that, random-effect meta-analyses were performed with dose-response.  
  • 21 studies including 19 cohorts were incorporated in this meta-analysis, 11 on all-cause mortality, 9 on coronary heart disease, and 10 on stroke.


  • Researchers observed that milk intake ranged from 0 to 850 mL/d.  
  • The results of this study showed that the summary relative risk (SRR) for 200 mL/d milk consumption was 1.01 (95% CI: 0.96–1.06) for all-cause mortality, 1.01 (95% CI: 0.98–1.05) for fatal and non fatal coronary heart disease, and 0.91 (95% CI: 0.82–1.02) for fatal and non fatal stroke.  
  • It was observed in the findings that stratified analyses by age, Body Mass Index, total energy intake and physical acitivity did not alter the SRR estimates.  
  • According to the outcomes of this work, the possibility of publication bias was found for all cause mortality and for stroke, demonstrating a gap in information that could have proposed a higher risk of these conditions with expanded milk consumption.
