Meet the baby red pandas at a US zoo 美国辛辛那提动植物园小熊猫幼崽在雪中玩耍

文字稿 

A study of 2 million Canadians found around 10% of dementia cases in urban areas could be linked to exposure to heavy traffic. The researchers found that living within 50 metres of a major road increased the risk of dementia by 7 to 11%. At 100 metres the increased risk was 4%. This research doesn’t prove that heavy traffic causes dementia. It makes a fascinating link that requires further investigation. For now, the best advice to reduce your dementia risk is to exercise and eat healthily.

一项以两百万名加拿大人为调查对象的研究发现,约有10%住在城市地区的失智症患者发病的原因可能与长期暴露在交通拥挤的环境中有关联。研究人员们发现,住在距交通干道50米以内的居民和其他人相比患该病的风险增加了7%到11%,距交通干道100米以内的居民的患病风险则增加了4%。该研究不能证明繁忙的道路交通会导致人们患失智症。不过它在两者之间建立了联系,这个奇妙的联系需要进一步的研究调查。目前看来,为降低患失智症的风险,专家们给出的最好建议是锻炼身体和健康饮食。
