"This study shows that as the US population increases, the number of people affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias will rise, especially among minority populations", said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield. In order for people who don't have Alzheimer's symptoms to participate in studies, they'll need to be tested for some of the telltale markers of susceptibility to the disease.
But that number is estimated to increase to 13.9 million by 2060, equaling almost 3.3 percent of a projected population of 417 million people.

"This study shows that as the US population increases, the number of people affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias will rise, especially among minority populations", said CDC Director Robert R. Redfield, M.D. Hispanic Americans are the group expected to see the largest jump in the next few decades given the trends in their population growth. A previous study published in 2015 also found that negative beliefs about growing old significantly reduced the volume of the hippocampus, an area of the brain for memory and an indicator for Alzheimer's disease.
U.S. researchers have discovered that there may be a link between an increase in symptoms of anxiety and a risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
