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.

Dairy food intake is inversely associated with risk of hypertension: The Singapore Chinese Health Study

I bet there is absolutely NOTHING  that will get your doctor to ask the nutritionist to create all these diet protocols; diet stroke prevention?, diet stroke recovery?, diet high blood pressure reduction?, diet dementia prevention?
The Journal of Nutrition, 12/15/2016
Talaei M, et al. – The analysis of the available data suggests that baseline dairy food intake, and specifically that of milk, may lessen the risk of developing hypertension in Chinese adults, and this may not be connected with the calcium component.


  •  The analysis included 37,124 Chinese men and women aged 45–74 y who took an interest in the Singapore Chinese Health Study in 1993–1998.
  • The subjects incorporated in the present study had no history of cancer, hypertension, or cardiovascular disease at baseline and completed °1 follow-up interview.
  • Diet at baseline was surveyed by utilizing a validated 165-item semiquantitative food-frequency questionnaire.  
  • The occurrence of new, physician-diagnosed hypertension was found out through follow-up interviews during 1999–2004 and 2006–2010.   
  • The Cox proportional hazard regression method was utilized to compute HRs and 95% CIs with adjustment for potential confounders. 


  • The results of this study showed that dairy food intake was inversely connected with the risk of hypertension in a dose-dependent manner: HRs across quartiles were 1.00 (lowest quartile, reference), 0.97 (95% CI: 0.92, 1.02), 0.98 (95% CI: 0.92, 1.03), and 0.93 (95% CI: 0.88, 0.98) (P-trend = 0.01).  
  • Milk accounted for ∼80% of all dairy products consumed in this populace.  
  • Findings revealed that daily milk drinkers had a lower danger of hypertension (HR: 0.94; 95% CI: 0.89, 0.99) than did nondrinkers.  
  • In addition, nondairy calcium intake contributed 80% of aggregate calcium intake.  
  •  Although dairy calcium intake was connected with a lower risk of hypertension (HR comparing extreme quartiles: 0.88; 95% CI: 0.83, 0.94; P-trend < 0.001), there was no relationship for nondairy calcium intake (HR: 1.02; 95% CI: 0.94, 1.10; P-trend = 0.58).
