Many people know that cerebrovascular
risk factors increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease, but don't realize that they could increase the risk of Parkinson's, too, according to study senior author Dr.
Kummer, M.D., from Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City, and colleagues conducted a retrospective cohort study to examine whether cerebrovascular
risk factors are associated with subsequent diagnoses of Parkinson disease and compared these associations to those with subsequent diagnoses of Alzheimer disease.
For men, apart from ischemic heart disease, the top killers are cerebrovascular

The increase in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome leads to increased burden of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular

Owing to its relatively high levels of saturated fat, consumption of dairy products has long been thought to increase the risk of death, particularly from coronary heart disease (CHD), cerebrovascular

diseases, such as stroke, affect the blood vessels in the brain.
The newly-discovered maladaptive cerebrovascular

The hereditary cerebral vascular gene screening by direct sequencing and the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the candidate gene were analyzed by high-throughput multiplex polymerase chain reaction to find the causative gene of the family cerebrovascular
