According to researchers it would appear that smokers have a higher risk than non-smokers of suffering from dementia in later life.

Yet another statistic to let us know that smoking is not good for us. It would also appear that non-smokers suffer the same risk.

Researchers at Cambridge University have published their results in the British Medical Journal on passive smoking. According to them passive smoking can almost double the risk of dementia for nonsmokers.

Non-smokers breathing in high levels of second-hand smoke are 44% more likely to have trouble with memory and the ability to calculate.
