Dementia, especially Alzheimer’s, is running rampant in the United States and according to the experts, it is expected to get worse.
It is estimated that in this year alone, every 66 seconds, someone in the United States will develop Alzheimer’s. While those numbers seem alarming, the Alzheimer’s Association annual report predicts that those numbers will double by the year 2050 to one in every 33 seconds.
However, this disease is not just an American problem. It is found in every country throughout the world. Last year, the numbers indicated that around 47 million people have some form of dementia.
