Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month

Posted on November 9, 2015 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

November is Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month.  In honor of this, we are posting a few facts about this disease you may or may not have known:


This disease can damage the brain a decade before problems appear.


Late-onset Alzheimer's is likely caused by a mix of lifestyle, genetic, and environmental factors.


Early-onset Alzheimer's is likely caused by a genetic mutation.  Fewer than 1 in 20 cases are early-onset.  It can affect ages 30-60 years old.


It is possible to have a mix of Alzheimer's and another type of dementia at the same time.



At least 70,000 volunteers are needed now, for more than 150 clinical trials and Alzheimer's studies.  To find one, you can link to this:
