Alzheimer’s cases are growing at an alarming rate as our lifespan rapidly outpaces our “brainspan”.
There are 5.4 million patients in the USA and as 71 million baby boomers head toward high risk age, Alzheimer’s could singlehandedly crush our healthcare system.
The good news is that dozens of Alzheimer’s genes have been identified, and the opportunity for stopping this disease has never been greater.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
