Compared with those who never smoked, the average consumer of tobacco has a 19% higher risk of dementia. Smokers who consume two packs of cigarettes a day, have a tendency to dementia, already increased by 172%.
The third type are prone to dementia: hudyshki. Researchers from the London school of hygiene and tropical medicine stated that a shortage of body weight is correlated with various neurological diseases, including mental disorders.
