CTDL 186: Dementia prescription: Take advil, play basketball

Ibuprofen study I understand. The study linking having shorter arms and legs to dementia is a bit more… odd.

Long-term use of ibuprofen may reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, a large US study reports.
Data from almost 250,000 veterans showed those who used the painkiller for more than five years were more than 40% less likely to develop Alzheimer’s.

A separate study also published in Neurology showed people with shorter arms and legs may be at a higher risk for developing dementia later in life.
The US researchers said poor nutrition in early life may be the link between the two.
