Alzheimer's Disease continues to baffle medical experts. Little is known about the cause and progression - what is known is that the number of those afflicted is likely to triple in the next few decades. Alzheimer's slowly destroys memory and thinking skills -- and eventually kills. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll get the latest on Alzheimer's treatment and research and learn about new efforts taking place in Ohio to develop a national strategic plan to fight it.

Listening to the caller and ‘early on-set’ Alzheimers. Knowing president Reagan had the disease. How do we know when his first developed? how do we know he did not have it at the time he was president. It was a brought up, in my household, when he said in a speech that he remembered an America without any racism. Working at a health insurance company and taking classes in medical terminology, classes on diseases, etc., I am truly starting wonder.

Thanks for a thorough conversation on the topic of Alzheimer’s. Indeed, the case was made for why we MUST INVEST financial resources NOW to SAVE big for our and our children’s/grandchildren’s futures. How will medicare/medicaid survive otherwise?!
