Air Pollution and Alzheimer's Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Air pollution exposure may exacerbate AD development, and epidemiologic and toxicological evidence indicated that higher concentration of SO2 or CO exposure increased risks of dementia, implying that SO1 or CO might have a potential impact on AD.

Ozone and Particulate Matter Exposure and Alzheimer's Disease: A Review of Human and Animal Studies.

Recent studies that show a potential role of environmental exposure, especially ozone and particulate matter exposure, in the development of AD are summarized.

Exploration of the Global Burden of Dementia Attributable to PM2.5: What Do We Know Based on Current Evidence?

Exposure to ambient PM2.5 pollution has been linked to multiple adverse health effects and there is a need to understand its potential role in high prevalence diseases, and future epidemiological studies at high exposure levels are especially needed.

Air Pollution Is Associated with Cognitive Deterioration of Alzheimer’s Disease

Air pollution is an environment-related risk factor that can be controlled and is associated with cognitive deterioration of AD, and this finding could contribute to the implementation of public intervention strategies of AD.

Exposure to ambient air pollutants and the onset of dementia in Québec, Canada.



Ozone, particulate matter, and newly diagnosed Alzheimer's disease: a population-based cohort study in Taiwan.

Long-term exposure to O3 and PM2.5 above the current US EPA standards are associated with increased the risk of AD, according to the adjusted HR for AD.

Exposure to Environmental and Occupational Particulate Air Pollution as a Potential Contributor to Neurodegeneration and Diabetes: A Systematic Review of Epidemiological Research

Available evidence indicates a consistent positive association between ambient air pollution and both T2DM and neurodegeneration risk, such as dementia and a general decline in cognition, however, corresponding evidence for workplace exposures are lacking.

Association between air pollution from residential wood burning and dementia incidence in a longitudinal study in Northern Sweden

If the associations observed are causal, thenAir pollution from residential wood burning, and air pollution from traffic, might be independent important risk factors for dementia.

Are noise and air pollution related to the incidence of dementia? A cohort study in London, England

Evidence of a positive association between residential levels of air pollution across London and being diagnosed with dementia is found, which is unexplained by known confounding factors.

Long-Term Exposure to Particulate Matter Air Pollution Is a Risk Factor for Stroke: Meta-Analytical Evidence

The scientific evidence of the past decade identifies long-term exposure to PM, and PM2.5 in particular, as a risk factor for stroke, however, some currently unexplained geographical variability in this association is found.

Increased Risk of Dementia in Patients Exposed to Nitrogen Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide: A Population-Based Retrospective Cohort Study

Exposure to NO2 and CO is associated with an increased risk of dementia in the Taiwanese population, and this large retrospective, population-based study indicates.
