vasectomy = certain type of dementia?

From THIS ARTICLE:

"The earliest symptoms of FTD are personality changes, lack of judgment and bizarre behavior. As in PPA, FTD usually starts at an earlier age, in the 40s and 50s.

One of Weintraub's patients with FTD was eating lunch in a restaurant with his family and excused himself to go to the bathroom. When he hadn't returned after 10 minutes, his sons went to investigate. They found him doing pushups on the bathroom floor. Other FTD patients begin shoplifting, compulsively gambling, misspending large amounts of money or become sexually demanding.
"

Sounds to me like vasectomies may explain a lot of so-called, male mid-life crises....

I'm not sure I believe the results of that study based on their numbers and methods. Sounds a little like ice cream and murders.
