Alzheimer’s, a terrible disease
In the world there are 47 million people with Alzheimer’s, and the number will increase to 130 million in 2050 due to the increase in life expectancy, according to data from the World Health Organization (WHO).
In Mexico there are a million and a half people with some type of dementia; the most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s. It usually occurs in people between the ages of 60 and 70.
Before the typical symptoms of Alzheimer’s appear, the brain begins to get sick up to 20 years before, without anyone noticing.
In social networks, the story of Peter Marshall, a 56-year-old man with Alzheimer’s disease, who asked his wife for the second time, was viral because the disease made him forget that they were married.
