The Democrats’ presidential candidate Hillary Clinton health issue has been lingering since the day one of the campaign period. The latest one claimed that she hasn’t recovered from the 2012 head injury and she only has a maximum of 18 months to live. But is it really the right time to abandon this possibility?
Considering the nature of work and the stress that comes with the work of the president of the most powerful nation in the world today, the president’s health is a paramount concern that every party should not ignore.
Citing a medical professor, who claimed to have taught in 3 US medical institutions, report from Express said the 68-year-old presidential candidate is battling with vascular dementia, a serious degenerative disease that affects older adults.
“We can see Hillary demonstrating problems with motor movement, with verbal communication, with forgetfulness and weakness. Subcortical vascular dementia is an especially difficult form of the disease because it is affects the brain stem, which controls many of the primitive functions of our bodies,” the professor was quoted as saying.
“Hillary Clinton is sick and likely dying. I am not making this up or overstating this. This is typical of the progression of vascular dementia. Her cognition and mentation are noticeably affected. Very soon she will be cognitively unable to fulfill the office and requirements of the presidency,” the professor said further.

Hillary Clinton Health Rumors
While Clinton herself has categorically denied rumors that she is suffering from a serious illness that could derail her candidacy, the speculations are just simply not dying that easily. While the discussions surrounding her well-being used to be confined within conspiracy theorists, now the topic is also being discussed in mainstream media.
With Clinton’s e-mail scandal, aside from the issue of national security, the president wannabe’s health was questioned anew, the Boston Globe reported.
It’s a public knowledge that Clinton had a concussion back in 2012, which, according to her critics, is something that should not be taken lightly. This concussion, together with frequent coughing, could altogether be an indication that the former Secretary of State could be suffering from a serious medical condition, the Raw Story reported.
Despite the repeated shrugging off of accusations of hiding a serious medical condition, Cinto’s critics are not giving up. One of them was CNN’s Political Commentator Carl Bernstein, who urged Clinton to release her medical records and face the media, the BreitBart reported.
Clinton’s Vascular Dementia
Bernstein said Clinton should “release her medical records, and spend an hour with the press talking about her health, that she also release those texts of the speeches before Goldman Sachs, say, as she did about foreign policy, and her vote on the war, I’ve learned from my mistakes, the American people want me to be more open.”
Early this week, the Washington Post just published a report with a headline ‘Can we just stop talking about Hillary Clinton’s health now?‘, which draws the ire of some analysts for misunderstanding Clinton’s medical condition.
Sure, that unless Clinton herself once and for all faces the media or release her medical report, questions about her health will linger, whether she likes it or not.
