Toxins and stress make 911 first responders more likely to develop dementia image

First responders to the 911 World Trade Center attacks have a higher risk of developing dementia, suggesting that stress and pollution are two causes of the disease.

Doctors are seeing early signs of cognitive decline among the first responders and at a rate that is far higher than among the general population of a similar age. Brain scans have also revealed neuro degeneration and a brain age that is 10 years older than their physical age.

Those who have struggled with their health, and especially if they have suffered from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) as a result, are in the highest risk category, say researchers from Stony Brook University.

Toxic materials at Ground Zero and psychological stress in the 20 years since the attack have put the first responders at risk, the researchers say. MRI scans of 276 first responders have shown brain degeneration that is similar to that seen in Alzheimer's and dementia patients. The average age of the people scanned was 55, but their brains were often those of someone 10 years older.

Read all about it - but only in WDDTY

From now on, you won't be able to buy WDDTY in a store, as we are reverting to a subscription-only magazine. The reason goes to the very heart of what this publication stands for. As a newsstand title, we were being censored in all sorts of subtle and not-so-subtle ways by a retail trade that chose never to support press freedoms. But we don't want to stop you from getting vital information which is why we've curated this special subscription offer just for you. By subscribing you can still get direct access to all this information every month, via a subscription, as thousands of others do.
