Adult asthma linked to higher dementia risk

from WebMD

People with asthma, particularly older ones, face a greater risk of getting dementia, a new study suggests. More research is needed to confirm the findings, the researchers say. The study, led by Yi-Hao Peng, Department of Respiratory Therapy, China Medical University Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan, was published online Sept. 30 in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. Researchers identified almost 13,000 people with asthma diagnosed between 2001 to 2003. For each person with asthma, they selected four other people with similar characteristics, such as age and gender, for a comparison group of 51,084. more
