The Herald

An aspirin a day may keep Alzheimer’s at bay by reducing brain damage caused by air pollution, according to new research.

Tiny toxic particles from traffic are breathed into the lungs and get into the bloodstream, killing neurons in the brain.

A study found high levels fuel cognitive decline after just 28 days but the risk more than halves in those using aspirin.

Millions take the pill to protect against heart attacks and strokes asit is also a blood thinner, preventing clots. It belongs to a class of medications called NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).

The finding in Nature Aging showed they limit air pollution’s impact on grey matter.
