Poor sleep leads to dementia by way of poor mito redox

    Neurodegeneration is always associated with a sleep defect because of mtDNA damage that destroys melatonin autocrine production. This sets up the circadian cycle loss that destroys dopaminergic neuron destruction.

    Sleeping less than six hours a night when you're in your 50s, 60s, and 70s increases your risk of dementia by 30%, a long-term study has found.

    This is a fascinating study. Now I will pay more attention to my sleep.
    Still, it seems to me that it is not lack of sleep that ultimately leads to dementia. I think genetics also plays an important role here. After all, most diseases are inherited. If you believe these studies, then every second or third person in your city should suffer from dementia. If these studies fully reflected the accurate picture, I would have already started collecting money for myself as a nurse from assistinghands. As stupid as it sounds, it is. Nevertheless, I am pleased that scientists are working on this problem, and maybe shortly, there will be a cure for dementia.
