People 70 and older who eat food high in carbohydrates and sugars have nearly four times the risk of developing mild cognitive impairment (MCI), according to research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Those who consume a lot of protein and fat relative to carbohydrates are less likely to become cognitively impaired, the study found.
A leading medical authority has criticized the increasing use of anti-aging hormones, saying anti-aging hormones offer little benefit but come with high risk.
Daily shots of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) improved cognition in both healthy adults and those with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), according to a new study published online in Archives of Neurology.
