Hypertension and Dementia

 A new study reveals that hypertension combined with at least one risk factor for developing Alzheimer's increases the chances of dementia.

"The identification of hypertension as an additional risk factor for amyloid plaque deposition is encouraging as we may be able to prevent, or at least slow, pathological aging in some individuals through lifestyle modification or pharmacological intervention," the study concludes. 

The study was conducted by Karen Rodrigue, PhD of the University of Texas at Dallas.
