The Dementia Risk NOBODY Talks About
When the first symptoms of dementia show up, it can be absolutely terrifying.
Maybe you’re forgetting names… or faces… or where you parked your car… or even how to get home.
Buy what if you could spot a MAJOR risk factor for dementia YEARS before the disease strikes?
You know, while there’s still time to stop full-blown dementia from occurring?
Believe it or not, it’s possible – let me show you.
According to a study published in the journal Neurology, there’s an undeniable link between dementia and high blood pressure.
High blood pressure causes an enormous amount of strain on your entire body. And while it is most often associated with cardiovascular disease, its impact on brain health should not be overlooked.
Previous research has connected high blood pressure to problems with memory, attention, and processing speed.
And now, we can add dementia to the list.
Researchers studied about 1,300 people until their deaths—at which point they autopsied their brains.
For every standard deviation above the average systolic blood pressure (that ranges from about 134 to 147), there was a 46% increase in having at least one brain lesion.
A brain lesion is damage to blood vessels in the brain.
Beta amyloid plaques are the leading risk factor for Alzheimer’s, but brain lesions are a close second.
Having just one lesion is said to increase your brain age by nearly a decade.
The researchers were specifically looking for a type of lesion called an infarct, which is an area of dead tissue caused by lack of blood supply.
This type of lesion is most commonly associated with a stroke, but it plays a role in dementia as well.
An increased risk of dementia is just one of MANY reasons to get your blood pressure under control.
High blood pressure also increases your risk of coronary artery disease, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, eye damage, sexual dysfunction, and more.
The best way to get your blood pressure under control is to eat more whole foods, get plenty of morning sunlight, avoid fake light at night, and stay away from electromagnetic fields.
To a brighter day,
