Are you more likely to Alzheimer's if you've had a head injury?
Are people who have experienced a head injury more suseptible to Alzheimer's? And if so, how much?
A study of american soldiers who fought in the WWII showed that those soldiers who suffered moderate head injury had twice the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease and those who suffered severe head injury had four times higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease than soldiers without head injury. If a head injury has an acute effect on development of Alzheimer's disease is less clear.
How many soldiers did they test, for how long and to what extent ..do you have a link to the study ?
A study of soldiers? Just one study ? shouldn't there be more studies ..after all our brain does control every other organ in our body ..just saying
