Author(s): Chenguang Wang

Cardiovascular disease and cognitive decline are two major health concerns that can have a significant impact on quality of life. Recent research has suggested that there is a link between the two, with poor cardiovascular health being associated with a higher risk of cognitive impairment. One study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that individuals with cardiovascular disease were more likely to have cognitive impairment compared to those without the disease. The study also found that even individuals with subclinical cardiovascular disease, such as those with high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol levels, were at an increased risk for cognitive decline
