The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (9/1, Parker) reported researchers found in a review that stroke increased the risk of being “diagnosed with dementia. In fact, history of stroke upped the risk by 70 percent and doubled the possibility for those who had suffered from a stroke recently.” The findings were published online Aug. 31 in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association. Newsweek (9/1, Spear) reported that Dr. David Llewellyn from the University of Exeter Medical School, one of the study’s authors, said, “Our findings…reinforce the importance of protecting the blood supply to the brain when attempting to reduce the global burden of dementia.” HealthDay (8/31, Preidt) also covered the study. 9SOURCE; APA Headlines)
