Report: Alzheimer's more common in women

Updated: Thursday, March 20, 2014 |
Report: Alzheimer
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - According to a new report, Alzheimer's affects more women than men.

The Alzheimer's Association says a woman's risk for getting the disease is 1 in 6, compared to 1 in 11 for men.

In fact, the group says women in their 60s are twice as likely to develop Alzheimer's than breast cancer.

Experts say the fact that women live longer than men is a top factor for this, but that more research is needed.

Women are also more likely to care for those with the disease.

Two-thirds of the 15 million caregivers in the U.S. are women.
