People living in rural areas may be at lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease

Journal Article


Abstract


  • People who live in regional or remote areas may be at lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, according to our recent research.

    Using data from more 260,000 adults in New South Wales who were aged 45 and over, we found those living in regional or remote areas of the state had a 6% to 19% lower risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease over 11 years, compared with their city counterparts.
