High biological age may increase the risk of dementia and stroke

People who have a higher biological age than their actual chronological age have a significantly increased risk of stroke and dementia, especially vascular dementia. These are the results of a study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. The study is titled, “Clinical biomarker-based biological aging and future risk of neurological disorders in the UK Biobank.”
