Birthplace May Be Tied to Dementia Risk
Place of birth may be associated with the risk for dementia, a new study has found. Researchers studied 7,423 California residents collecting health data on them from 1964 to 1973, then following up by examining their health records in 1996 to 2015. The average age was 43 at the start of the study, 71 at the end. They found that people who were born in nine states where rates of stroke are higher than in the rest of the country — the so-called “stroke belt” states of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, South Carolina and West Virginia — had a higher rate of dementia, even after they had moved to California   Read More ...
