Passive smokers at risk of Alzheimer's

13th February 2009

UK research has shown that people who live with a smoker could have an increased risk of developing conditions such as Alzheimer's disease.

A research team from Cambridge University and Peninsula Medical School in Exeter looked at information collected from over 4, 800 people in England aged over 50. Dr David Llewellyn, who chaired the study, said: "We found a big increase in risk to non-smokers exposed in the workplace to other people's smoke, or at home."
