from Alzheimer's Association via HealthDay News
Dementia strikes about one in 13 lesbian, gay or bisexual seniors in the United States, a new study finds. "Current estimates suggest that more than 200,000 sexual minorities in the U.S. are living with dementia, but — before our study — almost nothing was known about the prevalence of dementia among people in this group who do not have HIV/AIDS-related dementia," said Jason Flatt. He is an assistant professor at the University of California, San Francisco School of Nursing.
