What you do for a living might make you more likely to develop dementia.

Jobs that are centered around routine, or without a lot of daily changes, may make you more likely to develop dementia, according to a study published in Neurology.

“Most people in routine jobs in our sample included housekeepers, custodians, construction workers and mail carriers,” lead author Dr. Trine Edwin, a researcher at Oslo University Hospital in Norway, told CNN.

The outlet reported that those who worked in jobs with little daily changes had a 66% higher risk of mild cognitive impairment. After age 70, they had a 37% greater risk of dementia.
