People Living in Rural areas Prone to Alzheimer’s: Researchers
A recent research has found that people living or brought up in rural areas are more likely to be affected with Alzheimer's diseases. Normally, Alzheimer's affects senior citizens. It is a mental disorder, which has impacted lives of many.
The research was conducted by Edinburgh University's researchers. The researchers have pointed out that health care factors can play a significant role in triggering Alzheimer's. It is estimated that every year, about 8,00,000 people are affected by the mental disorder.
Besides, it is believed that by 2050 the number of people affected with Alzheimer's will double. For the research, the researchers examined about 51 academic papers published all over the world. Further research is required to be conducted so that it could be gauged as to why people living in rural areas are more likely to develop the disorder.
At present there isn't any treatment available for Alzheimer's. It is hoped that the recent findings will pave the way for a concrete treatment. The lead researcher of the study, Dr. Tom Russ said, "We don't really know the mechanism. It could be to do with access to health care, exposure to some unknown substance, socioeconomic factors... We're currently looking into this question in more detail".
