New Hope for Fading Memories: Alzheimer's Disease

Imagine walking into your kitchen and just standing there because you’ve forgotten how to prepare a bowl of cereal or toast bread. Add to this the nightmare of looking around and wondering where you are. Such is the average day for an individual suffering from a mind-robbing condition called Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It is estimated that Alzheimer’s affects as many as five million Americans and 26 million worldwide. And with the aging of our aging population, it is projected that the number of sufferers from this devastating disease will grow to 106 million by 2050.
