Study: Trust issues can lead to greater risk of dementia

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – A new study shows that people who have a deep mistrust of others are more likely to have health problems down the road. The study in the journal Neurology found that cynical people have a greater risk later in life of dementia.

The study looked at nearly 1500 people in their early 70’s.  Those with the highest levels of distrust were 2 1/2 times more likely to get dementia than those with lower levels of cynicism.
