There investigation showed that people who experienced high concentrations of suspended particles in the air, at least a year before their death, were more likely to present high levels of abnormal aggregations of protein fragments within nerve cells.

These aglomeraciones, known as plaques, signal the presence of Alzheimer’s in the cerebral tissue.

For this study, the investigators examined the brain tissue of the 224 people who agreed to donate their brains through death to help in the study of the dementia. The people died at around 76 years old.
