If you care about ending Alzheimer's disease and are over 18 years old and healthy there is a simple way to help! All you have to do is sign up for the Alzheimer's Prevention Registry at this link ! The Alzheimer's Prevention Registry is a project of Banner Alzheimer's Institute, a highly respected source of ground breaking research, International scientific collaborations and a new standard of care. Signing up for the registry does NOT commit you to any research but merely informs you if there is an opportunity to help with prevention trials and research. It also keeps you informed about new scientific breakthroughs and information concerning the brain and Alzheimer's Disease. They keep the information you give them COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL and do not share it with any other group or the research studies themselves. They merely match up possible candidates to participate and then send you an email asking if you might be interested. The rest is up to you, there are NO obligations.
This all came about because when doing research they run in to shortages of healthy people to participate in research. This can be a major problem when it comes to trying to figure out ways to stop Alzheimer's BEFORE it starts. Alzheimer's has reached epidemic levels as I have often repeated over and over in the past with a new case diagnosed every 68 seconds! There are currently 5.2 Million Americans diagnosed with Alzheimer's and this number is expected to TRIPLE by 2050! It is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. and the ONLY one of the TOP 10 causes of death that can not be prevented, treated or cured! This is a tragedy and something everyone should be concerned about. Someday it could be you struck by this disease which I regard as the worst of the worst. What can be worse than having your brain literally disappear bit by bit? Yet that is what those of us diagnosed are having happen! And to think in this day and age they still know so little about the disease and brain function compared to what they still need to learn is all the more reason why it is imperative for people to help! Today one in 10 adults acts as a caregiver for someone with Alzheimer's. That statistic alone is frightening. The cost to U.S. citizens for Alzheimer's in 2013 is estimated at $203 Billion dollars! This cost is projected to be at least 1.2 Trillion by 2050 if new treatments and preventions are not discovered. In fact, every healthcare dollar Medicare and Medicaid spend by 2050 could be related to Alzheimer's if something isn't done.
