Women Make Up Nearly Two-Thirds Of The More Than Five Million Americans Living With Alzheimer’s

In the Scientific American (12/28) “MIND Guest Blog,” Heather M. Snyder writes that “women make up nearly two-thirds of the more than five million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today.” New research indicates “there may be distinct biological and genetic factors shaping how the disease develops and progresses in women.” According to Snyder, “Understanding these differences will be of key importance in devising new, more effective strategies for treating, preventing and diagnosing Alzheimer’s.”
