Traumatic Brain Injuries — HEALTH REPORT

According to the UN's World Health Organization about 50 million people worldwide suffer from dementia including Alzheimer's Disease- the most common form with about two-thirds of cases

The researchers found that the risk of dementia increased by 33 percent for two or three TBIs, 61 percent for four injuries and 183 percent for five or more injuries.

People who suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may face an increased risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, one of the largest studies of its kind has found.

It does confirm earlier reports that people who have had brain injuries are at a slightly increased risk of developing the condition, but head injury is still a much smaller contributory factor for developing dementia than smoking, or a sedentary lifestyle - risk factors that are much easier for all of us to do something about. But if they experienced the same head injury in their thirties, the risk over the same time period was 37 per cent.

A traumatic brain injury can be caused by a fall, a traffic accident, a sports accident or a violent attack.

It dropped, as 61 investors sold UAL shares while 193 reduced holdings. 44 funds opened positions while 49 raised stakes. News coverage about Monsanto (NYSE:MON) has trended somewhat positive recently, according to Accern Sentiment.

Concussion is classed as a mild TBI.

Compared with individuals without a history of TBI, the risk of dementia after the age of 50 increased consistently with the number of TBIs-22% higher risk with one TBI (4.6% participants with dementia vs 4.1% of participants without dementia), 33% higher with two (0.5% vs 0.4%) or three TBIs (0.1% vs 0.1%), 61% higher with 4 TBIs (˂0.1% vs ˂0.1%), and almost three times the likelihood of dementia with five or more TBIs (˂0.1% vs ˂0.1%).

"If someone has a traumatic brain injury or concussion, they need to strictly follow the protocols to leave the game and get the proper assessment and treatment that is necessary", Fann said.

"Severe TBI is particularly frequent in young people, and it is concerning that the risk of dementia is particular high in relatively young persons who suffer TBI", said co-author Jakob Christensen, associate professor of neurology at Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark.

The parking restrictions are a major sign that preparations for an addition to the royal family are underway. She was also seen at Windsor church on Easter Sunday.

According to Fann, most people who sustain a single concussion do not develop dementia and the findings do not suggest that every person who sustains a severe TBI will develop dementia later in life. About 95 percent of people who suffered a brain injury never developed dementia. "If they have a history of traumatic brain injury, they should do their best to prevent further traumatic brain injuries".

Sport Scotland has recently issued new guidelines stating that all the head injuries should be instantly checked by the healthcare professional or the specialist in knowledge of symptoms such as vomiting, unusual behavior or headache.

Despite the size of the studies, they won't settle scientific questions - or social debate - about brain injuries from sports, war, vehicle crashes or domestic violence.

The scientists involved in the brain injury and dementia research identified every diagnosis of TBI from the health records of a Danish population of 2.8 million people between 1977 and 2013.
