A study of former professional soccer players in Scotland has found that they are less likely to die of common causes such as heart disease and cancer, but more likely to die from dementia.

Researchers from the University of Glasgow reported the results on October 21. They compared the causes of death of 7,676 Scottish men who played professional soccer with 23,000 other men born between 1900 and 1976. Over the study period, 1,180 of the former players died, and 3,807 of the others died.

The players had a lower risk of death from any cause until age 70. However, they had a 3.5 times higher rate of death from diseases such as Alzheimer’s. The risk is small, however – 1.7% among former players and 0.5% for the other group.
