    Close to 50 million Americans could be heading to Alzheimer’s now


    "Close to 50 million Americans could be in the early stages leading to Alzheimer’s disease right now, according to a new forecast.


    And 6 million people likely have it now, the team at the University of California Los Angeles calculated.


    The forecast is based on a lot of supposition as well as some hard data, but it’s the best estimate of how badly Alzheimer’s will affect the country in the coming years, said Keith Fargo of the Alzheimer’s Association, who was not involved in the research."

    Good. I'm tired of having sex with women who remember it afterwards.

    I can only guess who those 50 million are: brainwashed liberals.

    That is not a good reason to wish this blight on anyone.

    50 million? That's 20 %! Such a harsh consequence after all that junk food and obesity.
