    Very interesting: “Stratified analyses showed a significantly decreased risk of Alzheimer Disease - AD - mortality with aspirin, whereas non-aspirin Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs - NSAIDs- only showed a statistical trend toward significance in the adjusted Cox regression models (In an unadjusted Cox model, risk of AD mortality was decreased in NSAIDs users). NSAIDs use was associated with 71% decreased risk of AD mortality in older adults. Our results support the hypothesis that NSAIDs use is a protective factor of developing AD.”

    I wonder what it is that makes aspirin different?

    It would be nice to know the optimum dosage as well, optimum for heart and alzheimer's, but not enough to cause problems.
