People who smoke and drink heavily, dementia occurs much more quickly, according to a study of psychiatrists at University College London (UK). Many people are aware of the dangers of smoking and alcohol on dangerous diseases that cause bad habits. However, people do not always think of that, smoking another cigarette or drinking another glass, they bring themselves to dementia or, quite simply, dementia. Researchers have shown that smokers who also abuse alcohol, dementia develops in 36% faster than those who do not smoke and drink moderately.

Until then, researchers have paid attention that smoking and alcohol individually contribute to the development of dementia. However, for the first time, psychiatrists have paid attention to the combination of these factors, and found that the effect is really destructive. The research team evaluated 6473 adults (4635 men and 1838 women) aged 45 to 69 years over a 10-year period.

All the participants were asked questions about their alcohol habits, frequency of smoking. Next, the researchers assessed cognitive function - the ability to reason, solving simple math problems, memory, language development, etc. These cognitive tests were conducted three times over a ten year study.

It was found that smokers with alcohol problems, cognitive decline occurred at 36% faster than non-drinkers and moderate patients. Simply put, their brains wear out faster. We can say that in the ten years of the study the brain of smokers who drink heavily was "worn out" as if 12 years have passed.

The researchers hope that the results of their research will make people think. The effects of alcohol and smoking is detrimental not only to the lungs and liver, but also for the brain. The combination of smoking and alcohol consumption accelerates the development of dementia, and hardly anyone wants to have a relatively young 60 years of age to forget where I put the keys or the name of his grandson, just because of the fact that the young and middle age could not give himself in the extra glass and a cigarette.
