    Transcript:





    Bannister Wolfe: Bannister here, Let’s continue to Think Healthy. How about I give you One more reason to get vaccinated?
    Doctor Puja: This is what I want everyone listening to know. If you’re over the age of 65, both Moderna and the Pfizer vaccine, are showing overwhelming evidence that their vaccines are preventing hospitalizations from COVID. That means that if you happen to get covid after you’ve been vaccinated, the chances of you getting hospitalized, are almost non-existent.
    Bannister, I can’t tell you enough how great this news is.
    It basically means that if you’re vaccinated, the chances of you getting severely ill are almost gone.
    Bannister Wolfe: And, that’s Doctor Puja. So, it’s worth repeating. Please get vaccinated because once you do & then if you happen to get covid–guess what? You’re less likely to be seriously ill. Go get vaccinated!

    Sleep More and Sleep Well.

    Sleep More and Sleep Well.

    Bannister here, let’s continue
    to Think Healthy.
    Today we talk about the chances
    of getting dementia.
    Recently, Nature
    Communications published a major study.
    Basically, the study found
    that people over the age of 50–who
    slept less than six hours per night–had
    a HIGHER RISK of
    developing dementia–when
    it was compared to people
    who slept around 7 hours per night!
    Hi Bannister!
    The study looked at people
    over a 25 period.
    And it found that the risk of dementia
    went up for all sorts of people.
    So, look, the study suggests
    that when we sleep less,
    many functions of our body are disrupted.
    And THIS increases
    the chances of getting dementia.
    BUT, this does not mean that
    if you sleep less, you’re
    going to get dementia.
    Our bodies are extremely complicated
    and many times you’re going to find that
    there are more than one
    contributing factors for a disease.
    So, sleep more if you can!
    Rest more if you can!
    But…
    don’t get yourself into panic
    if you’re sleeping less
    than 7 hours a night.
    As always,
    talk to your health care provider!
    And that’s Doctor Puja.
