Poor sleep may be linked to dementia
Poor sleep may be linked to dementia (December 11, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Hawaii - Poor sleep may raise risk of dementia, according to a report published in Neurology. Researchers studied over 150 individuals with an average age of 84. Participants were followed until their death, or an average of 6 years later. During the autopsies, researchers examined participants brains for micro infarcts, loss of brain cells and plaques and tangles. They found that those who had the least amount of oxygen during sleep were 4x more likely to have brain damage with micro infarcts.
