Alzheimer’s and Dementia
While heart disease and cancer continue to be the two leading causes of death in our country, Alzheimer’s is by far the fastest growing. Not only is it set to triple in the next two decades, but an estimated 1 in 4 people will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in their lifetime. Further, while we all know cancer survivors, nobody knows an Alzheimer’s survivor. Thankfully, breakthroughs in research have discovered a significant link between inflammation and Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. We already know the damaging effect inflammation has on our body, it makes sense that it has a similar impact on our brain.
