Association between air pollution from residential wood burning and dementia incidence

A new publication from SCAC reports a correlation between long-term exposure to particulate air pollution (PM2.5) and dementia.

PM2.5 from vehicle exhaust as well as PM2.5 from residential wood burning were independently correlated to dementia. These results are the first to suggest a link between air pollution from residential wood burning and dementia, while the results regarding traffic-related air pollution and dementia corroborate results from several previous studies. Results and discussion on the implications of these results can be seen herelänk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster.​
