What is the Alzheimer’s epidemic?
It’s hard to believe, but every 66 seconds someone in the United States develops the disease. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. More than 5 million Americans are presently living with the disease, and that number is expected to climb to 16 million by 2050 with our aging population.
