Strokes are dangerous to human life and account for 10 percent of deaths globally. Dementia is a common term used to refer to symptoms that occur due to a decline in brain function. The condition is a global health concern that affects many due to subsequent high economic and social burdens. In addition, post-stroke dementia is an ailment wherein dementia is an aftereffect of a stroke.
A recent research study has provided strong evidence that the condition, as mentioned earlier, might be made a little better by intake of tea or coffee. It stated that drinking tea or coffee might result in a lower risk of stroke and dementia as per the research undertaken by the team where they observed healthy individuals with ages 50 to 74. The study is highly relevant for Dementia Treatment Market as it asserts that drinking coffee and tea lowers the risk of stroke and dementia. Further, it may also be linked with a lower risk of post-stroke dementia.
The team essentially studied 365,682 participants recorded with UK Biobank. They were recruited between the years 2006 and 2010, after which the researchers followed them till 2020. The participants were asked to self-report their tea and coffee intake. Over the research period, 5,079 individuals were noticed to have developed dementia, while 10,053 had experienced at least one stroke.
It was discovered that the people who consumed 2-3 cups of coffee, 3-5 cups of tea, or 4–6 cups of both coffee and tea per day had the lowest risk of stroke or dementia. Further, it was seen that participants who drank 2-3 cups of tea and 2-3 cups of coffee also showed a 32 percent lower risk of stroke. In addition, such participants also indicated a 28 percent lower risk of dementia. The statistics were in comparison with those individuals who did not drink either tea or coffee. The team also noted that intake of tea or coffee alone also meant a reduced risk of post-stroke dementia.
The researchers also stated that as a downside of the study, UK Biobank presents a relatively healthy sample than the condition of a general population. This might have restricted the generalization of the connection between the disease and intake of tea/coffee. Moreover, because few persons had dementia or stroke, it can be challenging to interpret rates correctly for larger populations. Finally, while drinking coffee and tea may be protective against stroke, dementia, and post-stroke dementia, the correlations cannot be used to infer causality.
