Health Quiz #4December 2, 2010 • By John Olsen
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!
