The causes of dementia have been linked to where people live, with research indicating that approximately 11% of dementia cases in people who live within fifty metres of busy roads could be due to the volume of traffic. The study found that the further away from a busy road you live the lower the risk of dementia.
Of course, this is new information and further research will be conducted on these findings. There are many risk factors for dementia such as ageing, genetics, smoking, physical inactivity and unhealthy diet to name a few…
In fact, nearly 50 million people suffer from dementia worldwide.
