Alzheimer's disease is most prevalent among racial and ethnic groups that are projected to grow the fastest during that period.

World Alzheimer's Day, which is observed on September 21, is an worldwide campaign aimed at raising awareness and to challenge the common stigma that surrounds Alzheimer's. As people are able to live longer with chronic illnesses such as heart disease or diabetes, their odds for developing a dementia in old age rises, the CDC explained.

Alzheimer's disease and related dementias are "characterized by a decline in memory leading to loss of independence", the authors write. But by 2060, that number will hit almost 14 million, which will then be 3.3 percent of the projected population.

"This study shows that as the US population increases, the number of people affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias will rise, especially among minority populations", said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D.

Southampton heads to Merseyside on the back of a disappointing 2-2 draw on home soil against Brighton last time out. The Citizens have attempted 2111 more passes than the Welsh side this season (3462 to 1351).

Alzheimer's disease is the sixth major reason of death in the USA and the fifth major reason among those elder than 65 years of age.

Hispanic Americans are expected to have the biggest increase due to population growth, but non-Hispanic whites still will have the most Alzheimer's cases, based on population numbers.

The number of people with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) in the USA over the age of 65 will double by 2060, according to a new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published Thursday. The walk is non-competitive and family-friendly and participants can learn about Alzheimer's disease, advocacy opportunities, clinical studies enrollment and support programs and services from the Alzheimer's Association. Since age is the greatest risk factor for dementia, it makes sense that rates of the disease will soar when the aging population has been growing. Among Hispanics, 12.2 percent were diagnosed with these conditions, along with 10.3 percent of whites and 9.1 percent of American Indian and Alaska natives. Premature diagnosis seems to be the clue for assisting people and their families survive with dissipation of memory steer the health care system, and propose for their care in the near future. On this day organisations working on Alzheimer's focus their efforts on raising awareness about Alzheimer's and dementia.

As a percentage of the population, that's more than double over four decades.
