"As a society, we have already overcome so many challenges, including developing life-changing treatments for some of the world's deadliest diseases". It's the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Governments have an obligation to support the 50 million people now living with dementia, and their families, which, again, is projected to increase exponentially to 152 million by 2050.

In the above age group, the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias is highest among African Americans at 13.8 percent, followed by Hispanics at 12.2 percent.

The number of people with Alzheimer's disease will almost triple over the next 40 years, unless something dramatic happens to change trends, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said this week. The researchers believe Hispanic Americans will have the largest increase due to their expected population growth in the coming decades.

The CDC team used Census and Medicare data to make the projections. It's an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly robs people of memory and, eventually, a person's ability to perform even the simplest tasks.

"If you count how many people have the pathology in the brain that says they're on their way, that goes up to closer to 20 million", Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, a neurologist and Alzheimer's specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, told NBC News in a Facebook Live conversation Friday.

This World Alzheimer's Month, we are also calling on governments to invest a minimum of 1% of the societal cost of dementia to funding research in basic science, care improvements, prevention and risk reduction, drug development and public health. The study of 9,361 older adults with high blood pressure found for the first time ever that the risking of dementia and cognitive decline could be reduced by aggressively lowering high blood pressure with medication and also by making healthy lifestyle changes.

After trials on mice focused on diseased neurons in the brain appeared to produce a breakthrough in the early 2000s, many corporations "thought they'd hit the jackpot", says Sarazin.

"Early diagnosis is key to helping people and their families cope with loss of memory, navigate the health care system, and plan for their care in the future", he said in a CDC news release.
