Saunas -Dementia

Middle aged men in Finland who take a sauna more than four times a week are two thirds less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease or dementia over a 20 year period.

Researchers at the University of Eastern Finland followed 2.315 men aged 42-60 years for 20 years as part of the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Study.  Men who reported taking a sauna 4-7 times per week were less likely to receive a diagnosis of dementia than those who only sauna once a week.  They were also 65% less likely to receive a diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.

Differences in age, blood pressure, alcohol use, smoking, blood cholesterol and other health conditions between the groups were accounted for in  the analysis.
