Alzheimer's Disease affects over 30 million people worldwide. It is a disease that debilitates and robs the mind of the victim. The end result is inevitably, death. However, this is going to get worse. Scientists predict the number of victims will increase to over 100 million in the year 2050. The global impact then will be unimaginable. Over 200 billion US dollars is spent a year on this disease. However, only a mere 500 million is spent on government funding. 6 billion is spent on cancer research. The government should really put a bit more emphasize on a disease whose impact is becoming a lot more profound over the years, and its just going to get worse if we continue to ignore it.
