80 percent of people think Alzheimer's is a normal part of aging
Despite estimates that more than one billion people will be affected by Alzheimer's disease by 2050, many around the world still don't understand the disease. In a survey of more than 6,000 people from 12 countries, the Alzheimer's Association says nearly a quarter of responders list Alzheimer's disease as the condition they most fear getting, behind cancer. Yet in some countries, including India, China and Saudi Arabia, more than 80 percent believe that the neurodegenerative condition is a normal part of aging, and not an abnormal state of the brain in which plaques of proteins build up and break down nerve connections.
