Use Your Head and Protect Your Brain

 

cyclistsHead injury, particularly more severe injury (such as that causing unconsciousness) has been shown to be a risk factor for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

 

In a USA study of veterans, moderate to severe head injury during WWII increased the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in general. For those with severe head injury the risk was 4.5 times greater than for those without head injury.


There are several mechanisms by which head injury may contribute to the development of dementia. One of these is the increased activity of secretase following head injury, which may result in amyloid deposits that in turn may affect the brain.


Protect your head:

  • wear seat belts in cars

  • use protective headgear when cycling or roller blading

  • take care as a pedestrian.
