Amazon Tribes May Have Lowest Rate of Dementia in the World (U.S. News & World Report)

U.S. News & World Report featured a study by Margaret Gatz, Andrei Irimia and colleagues that found very low rates of dementia in two Amazonian indigenous groups. “Something about the pre-industrial subsistence lifestyle appears to protect older Tsimane and Moseten from dementia,” said Gatz, the lead study author. The study was also featured in Daily Mail, Science Alert, Free Malaysia Today, IFLScience, and New Atlas.
