Pollution and women

Posted:

(CNN)--Listen up, ladies!

Pollution may be doing a number on your brain.

That's coming from a new study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Researchers looked at data from a study of nearly 20-thousand U-S women between the ages of 70 and 81 years old.

They then compared the information to data on pollution levels in these women's hometowns.

Then, they tested the women's memory and thinking skills at different periods of time.

They found the more pollution a woman was exposed to, the faster these skills declined.
