Association of passive smoking with cognitive impairment in older adults is unclear. We carried out a systematic literature review and a new study to determine the association. There were 3 cross-sectional studies published, showing a significant association of passive smoking with cognitive impairment (a relative risk (RR) of about 1.30-1.90). In the new cohort study, we interviewed 1081 never-smoking participants aged ≥ 65 years in China using a standard method of the Geriatric Mental State…

There is currently no consensus regarding the effects of passive smoking exposure on cognitive function in older adults. We evaluated 7000 permanent residents from six regions within Zhejiang
Passive smoking as a risk factor for dementia and cognitive impairment: systematic review of observational studies
TLDR
There is limited weak observational evidence linking passive smoking with an increased risk of cognitive impairment or dementia, however, the studies were methodologically diverse and of inconsistent quality, preventing firm conclusions.
Secondhand smoking and neurological disease: a meta-analysis of cohort studies
TLDR
Secondhand smoking was found to be positively associated with risks of stroke and cognitive impairment, while inversely associated with risk of PD, and suggests that more researches on biological mechanisms whereby secondhand smoking affect PD may be beneficial to PD prevention and treatment.
Exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke and the frailty syndrome in US older adults
TLDR
In the US nonsmoking older adult population, exposure to SHS was associated with an increased frequency of frailty, and more efforts are needed to protect older adults from SHS, especially at home and in other areas not covered by smoke-free regulations.

TLDR
Higher rates of decline by smoking were found in men and women, persons with and without family history of dementia, and in three of four participating studies, suggesting smoking may accelerate cognitive decline in nondemented elderly.
