Men may be 1-1/2 times more likely that women to have mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Ronald Petersen, MD, PhD, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN., stated that results from a study of 2,050 people (ages 70 to 89) found that “nearly 14 percent of participants had mild cognitive impairment, about 10 percent had dementia and 76 percent of those tested had normal memory and thinking skills. A total of 19 percent of men had mild cognitive impairment, compared to 14 percent of women.” Click below for a report from ScienceDaily.
