German research: Inhalation of car exhaust can cause Alzheimer’s disease
A recent study by German scientists found that women who live in street-facing homes and breathe car exhaust all year round are prone to symptoms of marked deterioration in their cognitive ability when they are old, and may suffer from dementia.
銆€銆€From Heinrich, Germany?
Scientists at the Center for Environmental Medicine Research at the University of Heiney surveyed 399 older women between the ages of 68 and 79.
They have lived in a certain place for more than 20 years.
The results of the study showed that the closer they lived to the road, the more complications were recovered, and the more severe the decline in memory and cognitive ability.
銆€銆€The researchers analyzed data from the German environmental protection department over the past 25 years on the contamination of the elderly women surveyed, and the levels of intake of these older women were calculated and compared.
銆€銆€At the same time, the researchers also conducted a series of neurophysiological and cognitive ability tests, including oral presentation, learning ability, memory and so on.
It was found that elderly women living in areas with increased traffic density and heavy pollution had a higher risk of cognitive impairment, and cognitive impairment was medically considered to further lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
銆€銆€The study, published in the latest issue of the US Journal of Environmental Studies, reported for the first time that cognitive impairment was linked to inhaling car exhaust.
