  • I think this is important because it contributes more information to a growing body of evidence that early life matters to brain health and that maybe early life conditions partially explain the racial disparities we see in dementia risk," Gilsanz said. (
  • When the team took into account the potential role of intelligence or education, the unadjusted relationship between height and dementia risk was only slightly reduced. (
  • They found that the relationship between height and dementia also existed when they looked at brothers with different heights, suggesting that genetics and family characteristics alone do not explain why shorter men had a greater dementia risk. (
  • We don't know yet whether reducing homocysteine levels will reduce dementia risk, but this is something that can and will be tested in clinical trials. (
  • Obesity , an important risk factor or both diabetes and sleep apnea, was taken into account. (
  • Investigators found that childhood asthma was linked to a 51% increased risk of obesity over the next decade. (
  • Asthma and obesity often occur together in children, but it is unclear whether children with asthma are at higher risk for onset of obesity or whether obese children develop asthma, or both," said lead author Zhanghua Chen, a postdoctoral research associate of preventive medicine at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California. (
  • Our findings add to the literature that early-life asthma history may lead to increased risk of childhood obesity," Chen said in a statement. (
  • The fact that rescue, but not controller, asthma medication appeared to reduce the risk of obesity was surprising, said senior author Dr. Frank Gilliland, a professor of preventive medicine at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles. (
  • Additionally, "sleep disturbances are common in asthma, and a large risk factor for obesity," he said. (
  • To reduce the risk of obesity, the authors say children with asthma can use simple but effective strategies for improving their overall health. (
  • And while obese people had a greater mortality risk over all, those at the lowest obesity level (B.M.I. of 30 to 34.9) were not more likely to die than normal-weight people. (
  • They analyzed data from 6750 children to estimate the association between bottle use at 24 months of age and the risk of obesity at 5.5 years of age. (
  • The authors say the findings provide more reason to address rising obesity rates and to investigate whether interventions that promote a healthy lifestyle may help to mitigate MS risk. (
