Low income accelerates memory decline in middle age, research

Economic inequality is linked to a number of medical problems such as depression, high blood pressure and obesity.


But now it has been revealed that low income also causes memory impairment in middle age.


This was revealed in a medical study conducted in the United States.


The columbia university study examined data from 2,879 people born between 1936 and 1941.


From 1994 to 2004, their salaries were compared and divided into three groups, i.e. they were divided into high-income, middle and low-income groups.


These individuals’ memory decline was then assessed from 2004 to 2016.


Research has found that the process of memory decline of low-paid people is very fast in middle age .


Researchers said that the results provide new evidence that indicates that there is a relationship between our income in adolescence and the speed of memory decline in later life.


He added that social policies should improve the financial status of low-income people, which can improve their mental health.


He said that more research work will be done in this regard in the future and will be seen how to prevent mental decline.


The results of this study will be presented during the International Conference of the Alzheimer’s Association.
