Amazing Fact of the Day

Heard from a parishioner who had been to an Alzheimer's Conference this past week:

half of all the persons who have ever reached the age of 65 are still living.

That is amazing.

He threw in this tidbit for additional mental stimulation:

The incidence of Alzheimer's reaches a plateau after age 90...for no currently known reason.

We think of 65 as a younger age these days...it is truly amazing to think that it is a fairly new phenomena. -Kate
