Alzheimer’s Disease: What You Need to Know
Today, it is estimated that about 5.2 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. It is the sixth leading cause of death in the US and the most common form of dementia. As with most forms of dementia, the cause is the neurons in the brain that stop communicating and start to die. The more neurons that become isolated, the more it affects the memory, mood, behavior, learning, and eventually the physical functions of the body.
