Updated: Wednesday, March 19, 2014 |
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Women age 60 and older have a 1 in 6 chance of getting Alzheimer's in their lifetime.

That's according to a new report out Wednesday morning from the Alzheimer's Association.

A study of more than 3,000 women also found they are twice as likely to develop the disease than breast cancer.

Men, by comparison, have a 1 in 11 chance of getting Alzheimer's.

It's estimated the disease affects more than 5-million Americans, two-thirds of them are women.
