Sound crazy? Incredibly, it may not be so far fetched. At least, not according to research conducted by a group at the KI Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at the Karolinska Institutet, in Stockholm, Sweden.
As reported in a AARP Bulletin, the results of their study over a 21 year period indicates that men and women who are not married are at greater risk of Alzheimer’s. The study observes men and women in several groups, including married, mid-life separation and single for life.
The most at-risk group? People who lost spouses mid-life and did not seek another partner.
