Dementia in women — why testing is important
from Corporate Wellness Magazine
One of the most prevalent concerns of today is the world's population aging at an unprecedented rate. According to the United Nations WPA 2015 report, 617 million people i.e. 8.5 percent of individuals worldwide are aged over 65. This percentage will increase to 17 percent (1.6 billion) by 2050. A major problem encountered by the aging population is that they are more prone to diseases like Dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Unlike Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, Dementia is not a single disease but a host of mental illnesses that include symptoms like memory loss, difficulty in thinking, problem-solving, and loss of motor skills, personality changes, hallucinations, and paranoia.
