Health Quiz #4


A 2009 study published in the journal Neurology concludes that people who consume the highest amounts of __________________ increase their risk of dementia (including Alzheimer’s) by 66 %.

A.  NSAIDS (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as Tylenol, Advil, and Naprosyn

B.  Paint Chips

C.  Vitamin C

D.  “Water pills”

The answer is A, NSAIDS.  Eating lead paint chips is associated with dementia as well, but that’s old news.  A 66% increase in dementia risk associated with pain medication use is HUGE!  It should have been a top story on the major news networks and in all of the big newspapers and syndicated news sources!!

Chiropractic physicians offer drug-free options for restoring function and reducing back, neck, and joint pain plus many types of headaches.  It is a great way to reduce pain medication consumption, and thus, not leave you as vulnerable to developing dementia!

  1. Good spot on that article in Neurology! I just love the non-side-effectness of what we do, or, put another way, a beneficial side effect of what we do is decrease dementia by decreasing the need for NSAIDS. Keep up the informative blogging!
