A team of scientists used 151 water samples from across Denmark and developed a comprehensive map of lithium levels in drinking water for all 275 municipalities in the country with the help of the received data.

Compared to those who only got 2-5 micrograms of lithium per liter in the drinking water,  people that consumed at least 10 micrograms had a 17% decrease in their incidence of dementia.
