An Alzheimer's Primer
"Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the leading cause of dementia in the elderly and the
fourth leading cause of death late in life, yet little is known about its cause. Five
percent of individuals over 65 suffer from severe dementia, and it is believed that over
half of these cases are the result of Alzheimer's. Because AD cannot be definitively
diagnosed until an autopsy or cortical biopsy is performed, this figure is only an
estimation. Currently, there are approximately 4.1 million cases in the U.S. As people
live longer and longer, dementia will become an even greater health problem in the future
than it is today (Kimble, 1992). Refer to the Alzheimer's Association or the Alzheimer's
Society of Ottawa-Carleton for more information. There is also an Alzheimer Web Home Page
from University of Melbourne, Australia that provides a comprehensive list of links to
research sites and recent articles, as well as a summary current theories."
