Alzheimer’s May Be a Bigger Epidemic Than We Realized!

Do you know how many Americans are living with Alzheimer’s right now? How about how many billions of hours are spent caring for Alzheimer’s patients each year? We’re betting you don’t.

Alzheimer’s Disease alone (that’s right—just Alzheimer’s, not any other forms of dementia) is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. There is currently no known cure for the disease, and our treatments are largely ineffective and temporary.

Scientists and medical professionals have known about the existence of Alzheimer’s since the 1800s, and yet we’re not much closer to being able to rescue people from this disease’s clutches than we were when it was discovered. Everyone who develops Alzheimer’s will eventually die of it if they don’t die of something else first. And that is one of the greatest tragedies of our day.

It’s time to do something about this terrifying disease! It’s been a mysterious and unstoppable killer for too long. So the Alzheimer’s Association is urging you to learn the facts and join the fight now!

Watch the video below to learn the shocking facts about this epidemic. We can’t ignore it anymore!
