Proximity to clogged highways could increase risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia (Reuters TV)

Reuters TV featured research by Jiu-Chiuan Chen of Keck Medicine of USC, Constantinos Sioutas and Arian Saffari of the USC Viterbi School, and Caleb Finch and Todd Morgan of the USC Leonard Davis School on the possible link between pollution and smog inhalation and the incidence of dementia. “This is really a public health problem and I think the policy makers need to be aware of that,” said Chen. The story also quoted Sioutas. World Journal featured Chen’s research in two stories and The Times (UK) also highlighted the study.
