MONDAY, Aug. 28, 2017 -- Women with a genetic predisposition for Alzheimer's disease face a 10-year window when they have far greater chances of developing the disease than men with similar genetic risks, a new analysis suggests.
That window seems to occur between ages 65 and 75 -- more than 10 years after the start of menopause, say University of Southern California researchers who reviewed 27 prior studies.
SUNDAY, Aug. 6, 2017 -- Moderate drinking may be associated with a reduced risk of dementia in seniors, a new study suggests.
But the study authors stressed that the findings shouldn't be interpreted as a signal to drink freely. The study only found an association between some alcohol consumption and mental sharpness, not a cause-and-effect link.
