One study conducted by researchers at Northwestern University found that men with PPA were more likely to have undergone vasectomy than cognitively normal men of the same age, with 40% of men with PPA having had a vasectomy compared to 16% of others. However, it's important to note that this study only showed a correlation and not causation. Further research is needed to determine whether there is a causal relationship between vasectomy and PPA or other forms of dementia. It's also worth mentioning that the vast majority of men who have undergone a vasectomy do not experience any negative effects on their cognitive abilities.
