Nearly 5 million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimer's disease and that number is projected to triple by the year 2050. As the baby boomer population continues to age and prominent Americans such as Ronald Reagan are afflicted, Alzheimer's remains a significant public health problem and there is no cure on the horizon. The encyclopedia of Alzheimer's Disease presents the most up-to-date information on the physical, emotional, and intellectual conditions that affect an Alzheimer's sufferer. It also examines the current research on prevention, causes, and treatments, as well as the social issues surrounding the disease. Appendixes include major resources, organizations, helpful books and publications, an extensive bibliography, and a glossary.
