“Dementia more common in people who live near highways,” by Lois A. Bowers, McKnight’s Senior Living

“People who live near major state or interstate highways have a greater risk of developing dementia than those who live farther away, according to a study of 6.6 million people published Jan. 4 by The Lancet.  …  The researchers also looked into whether traffic exposure was related to the development of Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis but found no link.”
