Alzheimer's disease kills brain cells, which causes an individual's memory and thinking ability to deteriorate. For example, elephants, socially driven herd animals that possess extraordinary late-life memory in their massive brains, have also offered some clues about why the Alzheimer's rate in climbing in the U.S. Several studies have shown that Americans who suffer from social disengagement in older age are more susceptible to mental deterioration.

The number of Americans living with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias is set to double by the year 2060.

More than 200 clinical studies on Alzheimer's are recruiting participants in the USA right now, the Banner Institute said. On this day organisations working on Alzheimer's focus their efforts on raising awareness about Alzheimer's and dementia. Governments have an obligation to support the 50 million people now living with dementia, and their families, which, again, is projected to increase exponentially to 152 million by 2050. Signs of Alzheimer's may be more noticeable to friends and family members.

But women are also far more likely to be struck by Alzheimer's than are men of the same age. "An early assessment and diagnosis is key to planning for their health care needs, including long-term services and supports, as the disease progresses", said Kevin Matthews, lead author of the study and a health geographer with the CDC's Division of Population Health in the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion.

China summons USA envoys over sanctions linked to Russian Federation deal
The Chinese military urged the USA to correct its mistake and withdraw sanctions, or bear the consequences, Wu said. China has bought Russian Su-35 fighter jets in defiance of USA sanctions against the Russian Federation.

The study is the first to forecast Alzheimer's disease by race and ethnicity.

"Patients with Alzheimer's disease usually reports to doctor for the complain of forgetfulness or behaviour and psychological symptoms". This is followed by Hispanics, at 12.2 percent; non-Hispanic whites, at 10.3 percent; American Indian and Alaska Natives, at 9.1 percent; and Asian and Pacific Islanders, at 8.4 percent. That's about 1.6 percent of the population.

The disease will only become more and more prevalent among black and Hispanic people, on the other hand, affecting 2.17 million and 3.2 million, respectively.

Alzheimer's disease renders people unable to care for themselves, and that has a ripple effect on society. Although there is no cure, here we round up some of the recent research which has found that making certain lifestyle changes can help reduce your risk of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
