      Researchers from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Oxford have analyzed data from UK Biobank participants, uncovering that among 15 modifiable risk factors for dementia, diabetes, traffic-related air pollution, and alcohol intake pose the greatest harm. They evaluated 161 risk factors, assessing their impact on dementia vulnerability beyond natural aging effects. These modifiable risk factors so named because they can be altered throughout life to lower dementia risk were categorized into 15 broad groups: blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, weight, alcohol consumption, smoking, depressive mood, inflammation, pollution, hearing, sleep, socialization, diet, physical activity, and education.
