Alzheimer's is the 5th leading cause of disease death in the U.S. Alzheimer's kills 11 times more people every year in U.S. than die of the so called AIDS epidemic. (Over 232 daily) The NIH still (2013 estimated budget) budgets over $3.5 billion + a year on AIDS research and funding, while Alzheimer’s, with over 11 times as many victims, receives a mere $484 million. Alzheimer's annual mortality Rates increased 68% in the decade 2000-2010. Preliminary 2011 data indicates total of 84,691 yearly deaths. . There are 450,000 new cases a year. Over 1,200 daily! Year 2050 projections = 1,000,000 cases. There are 44 + million cases world wide. (2013) The disease is raging out of control with pathetic funding. - Contact The President and Congress!
