Significant Statistics on Drop (yes, drop!) in Alzheimer's Incidence in US

From McKnight's comes this interesting report on new statistical information on Alzheimer's:

"The odds of developing Alzheimer's disease fell sharply among seniors in the United States over the last 30 years, according to research presented Tuesday at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in Copenhagen. The finding casts a new light on prior estimates that the number of people needing long-term care will triple by 2050, largely due to Alzheimer's."

For a more complete report on the Conference, see McKnight's piece "Chance of a senior developing Alzheimer's has dropped 44% over the last three decades, large U.S. study shows."
