Generation Alzheimer's -- REPORT

I am reproducing a message from Diane and the link to the full report is also given.
Interesting study. Please read it. If you are unable to download the report for any reason I can send it over as attachment - pdf - 1075K by email.

We in India are relatively better off than USA in terms of ALzheimers
disease affliction. GOI is also taking early action to  recognize
Dementia as an important elders related issue for necessary action,
thanks to active ARDSI intervention.

However research funding is zero, I dare say.  VYasamoorthy

Hi again Vyasa

I sent you a couple of emails over the past two weeks and wanted to try one last time. As you may have heard, there have been some amazing breakthroughs this past month in linking certain genes to Alzheimer's, but there is still a lot of work to be done. This year, the first of the Boomer Generation turns 65. To bring urgently-needed attention to the risk facing the Boomers,Alzheimer's Association released a groundbreaking study, Generation Alzheimer's: The Defining Disease of the Baby Boomers.

I thought that you would be interested in sharing this important information with the readers of Kaaranam-ketkadey, so I've put together a microsite, with all sorts of information to help spread the word:

Please let me know if you are able to post or tweet about this or if have any questions.

Thank you so much,

Diane Wright
