MD Magazine (5/15, Walter) reported, “Veterans are not at a higher risk of developing dementia than civilians, unless they suffer from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), according to new research” published in the Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation. Specifically, “the investigators found that dementia rates are likely to be similar between Veterans and civilians (10.7% vs. 8.8-11.6%).” Moreover, “dementia prevalence is also likely to be higher in individuals with a traumatic brain injury (6-16%) than in those without a TBI (3-10%), with a possible dose-response relationship between the 2 groups.”(SOURCE: APA Headlines)
