Job Complexity and Dementia Risk
Subjects who were working jobs that required complex interactions with people or complicated skills were less likely to develop dementia later in life. Professions that are considered high in these complexity categories include law, medicine, social work, engineering, architecture, and music.
Physical Activity and Risk of Cognitive Decline
Researchers found that subjects who reported high activity levels had a significantly reduced risk of cognitive decline compared to those who reported low activity levels. Exercise benefits every aspect of physical and mental health, and this is no exception.
Rise of Global COPD Burden
The burden of COPD on the world's population is worse than ever before. A study compared the number of cases and deaths attributed to COPD between 1990 and 2015. The number of annual cases increased by 44.2% and the number of deaths increased by 11.6%.
