2 Your Health: Cynicism Tied to Dementia Risk


New research shows people who have a hard time trusting others are more likely to develop dementia.

This new study looked at almost 1,500 people with an average age of 71.

They were given a test for dementia, and one for their level of cynicism.

The results showed people with the highest level of cynical distrust had a two-and-a-half times greater risk of dementia than those with lower levels of cynicism.

The study was published in the journal Neurology.
