1 in 3 seniors die from Alzheimer
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - One in three American seniors die from Alzheimer's or dementia.

A recent Alzheimer's Association report found the death rate for the disease rose 68 percent during the past decade, and unless researchers find a way to prevent it or treat it, that number is expected to climb even higher.

The report also found that 70-year-olds with Alzheimer's are twice as likely to die within 10 years compared to 70-year-olds who do not have the disease.

This is due to the fact that their bodies are more prone to pneumonia and other illnesses.
