Research explores how exposure to air pollution increases risk for neurodegeneration

There is growing awareness that air pollutants are playing a critical role in the development of neurodegenerative diseases. A new book, Alzheimer’s Disease and Air Pollution: The Development and Progression of a Fatal Disease from Childhood and the Opportunities for Early Intervention, edited by Lilian Calderón-Garcidueñas, MA, MD, Ph.D., compiles the latest research establishing links between air pollution and neurodegeneration. It is part of the Advances in Alzheimer’s Disease series, published by IOS Press.
