A study by Michigan State University (MSU), published on November 18 in The Gerontologist, has found those who identity as lesbian, gay, bisexual (or other non-heterosexual orientations) are more likely to suffer from dementia in later life than heterosexual people.

3,500 adults were tested for temporal orientation, language, visuospatial skills, executive function, attention, concentration and working memory, and short-term memory.
