I am reading a book called “The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program” and here are some scary statistics right off the bat:

Every 70 seconds, another American gets Alzheimer’s disease, and by midcentury, a new case will develop every 30 seconds. Currently, 36 million people worldwide suffer from the disease. By 2050 we can expect 115 million cases of Alzheimer’s, causing tremendous emotional distress and economic hardship.

This blog is regarding pick’s disease, and it is not the same as Alzheimer’s but usually any dementia is lumped with this disease as it is the most widely recognized.
