Comparison of particulate air pollution from different emission sources and incident dementia

JAMA Internal Medicine

Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: In this nationally representative study, higher residential levels of fine particulate matter were associated with greater rates of incident dementia, especially for fine particulate matter generated by agriculture and wildfires. These findings also indicate that intervening on key emission sources might have value, although more research is needed to confirm these findings. 

Authors: Boya Zhang, Ph.D., of the University of Michigan School of Public Health in Ann Arbor, is the corresponding author.
