Alzheimer’s – a majority women’s disease 

I have read for sometime that alzheimer’s takes the lives of mostly women. The last few days reading material seems to be increasing the estimate of women both coming down with the disease and in the caregivers role. The percentage may be as high as 70% for women in both areas. I’m not great at remembering to get links for things I read, so you will need to search a bit for references to my summation. 

Here is one link I just found and copied to insert in this post. It’s from the Alzheimer’s Association.
