Over the next 40 years, according to Dr. Gregory Petsko, "There will be an epidemic of neurologic diseases on an epic scale." By the year 2050, the U.S. population will include 32 million people over the age of 80; about half of those will have Alzheimer's disease, and another three million will have Parkinson's. Understandably, the time for more research, treatment, and prevention is now.
