Damaged Blood Vessels May Cause Aging Symptoms

September 12th, 2011

A study has shown that in many elderly people with decreased mobility and symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, damaged blood vessels in the brain that would be undetectable on a normal scan could be linked to these signs of aging. 29% of patients studied has not had a stroke nor had any signs of contricted blood vessels, yet were shown to have damage and small blood clots that could be linked to their mild Parkinson’s symptoms. Though considered a normal part of aging, researchers of this project believe limited mobility can be prevented and should not be accepted.
