There are some new ways that may indicate what your chances are of having a stroke or developing dementia.
According to new research from the Boston Medical Center, your risk of developing a stroke may be able to be determined by your handshake.
For those over 65 years old, having a stronger grip is associated with a 42-percent lower risk of having a stroke.
The study's author says a weak grip might be a sign of poor overall cardiovascular health.
The same study also found that those who walk quickly have a much lower risk of getting dementia.
The author says the time it takes someone to process the information they need to be able to walk, can measure how damaged the brain is.
