NYTimes Calls For Intensified Alzheimer’s Research

n an editorial, the New York Times (3/13, A26, Subscription Publication) points out that a study published in the journal Neurology “has suggested that Alzheimer’s disease causes six times as many deaths as the official statistics would indicate,” catapulting the disease “from the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States to the third, behind heart disease and cancer.” The Times concludes that an aging population, coupled with the economic burden of Alzheimer’s, make “it imperative to intensify research into ways to treat and prevent the disease.”
