A Good Sense of Smell Associated with a Longer Life
People with a good sense of smell in middle and old age may live longer than their peers without sensitive noses, a new research suggests.
For the study, a team of researchers from Stockholm University, Sweden, followed 1,774 people for 10 years. At the beginning of the research, the participants aged from 40 to 90 were asked to identify 13 different odors. The scientists discovered that people who lose their sense of smell were more likely to die soon than those who didn’t.
Dr Jonas Olofsson, the senior author of the study, says: “Our results were not explained by dementia, which was previously linked to smell loss. Instead, mortality risk was uniquely predicted by smell loss.”
