    Key Points

    Question Is a higher lithium level in drinking water associated with a decreased incidence of dementia?

    Findings In this Danish nationwide, population-based, nested case-control study of 73 731 patients with dementia and 733 653 control individuals, the level of lithium exposure was lower for patients with a diagnosis of dementia than for controls. Similar patterns were found with Alzheimer disease and vascular dementia as outcomes.

    Meaning Exposure to higher long-term lithium levels in drinking water may be associated with a lower incidence of dementia.
