Air pollution and impaired lung function prove independent risk factors for cognitive decline

18 mayo 2015

Studies have shown that both air pollution and impaired lung function can cause cognitive deficits, but it was unclear whether air pollution diminishes cognition by reducing breathing ability first or whether air pollution represents an independent risk factor for cognitive deficit. Now a new study has answered that question: air pollution directly affects cognition and is not mediated by lung function.
