The study involved more than six thousand people born from 1902 to 1943. The main goal of scientists was to identify the socio-economic factors that affect the development of dementia in old age. As a result, researchers came to the conclusion that those who receive little, the risk of developing dementia in old age is higher. The experiment showed that the poor have a 50% higher risk of developing dementia than wealthy people. The fact is that money, according to researchers, allows people to lead a more active social life, which helps to maintain cognitive abilities to the full.
