Why dementia and Alzheimer's...
Every 66 seconds, someone in the US develops Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, the 6th leading cause of death and the ONLY cause of death in the top 10 that is not preventable or curable.
The Alzheimer's Association estimates that there are approximately 5.3 million people in the U.S. with Alzheimer's - 2/3 of those are women. Globally, the World Health Organization estimates approximately 36 million people have Alzheimer's. These numbers will grow exponentially as the population ages.
