Ah, the 1950s. The war was won, populations were populating, and
babies boomed. But six decades later, a new specter haunts Europe and
North America: age. In America, more than 5 million baby boomers suffer
from Alzheimer's, costing the nation $172 billion annually and
siphoning productivity from 10.9 million unpaid caregivers. And cases
of age-related neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's,
Parkinson's, and stroke are expected to spike.
