The author of a new book on Alzheimer’s disease talks about our aging political leadership in America

Age is the main risk factor for developing Alzheimer’s disease. A person’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease doubles every five years after age 65. One in six people over the age of 80 currently suffer from dementia – many of them have Alzheimer’s disease. By the time a person reaches the age of 85, 1 in 3 people will have it.

NAPA, Calif., June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In Truth, lies and Alzheimer’s – Her secret facesbehavior specialist Lisa Skinner provides a roadmap for distinguishing normal aging from something more troubling by identifying common early symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. With an aging herd of politicians making key decisions for America, it’s important to ask questions about the cognitive health and fitness of our country’s current leaders.

“I wanted to take action — not just sit back and wait to see what would happen,” Skinner said. “It’s important to be proactive, educate yourself about the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss, and take action and get involved in the process.”

“One of the key functions that our brain performs is that of perception. In a person with dementia, the ability to perceive things the same way you do diminishes and will affect that person’s judgment both visually and conceptually. His level of confusion will increase overtime.”

Today you are nobody in Washington unless you are 80 years old.

Don LemonCNN host said people should know about the ‘health, history, both physically and mentally’ of the president of the United States He said the president is a ‘nice man’ but is going to have 80 years old and that he will be in his 50s, Lemon himself has “trouble remembering things”.

“I’m not as sharp as I used to be. And the job of being president of United States is really, really hard work,” Lemon said. “I’m sure he’s up to it, but it’s my job as a journalist to ask.”

We ask presidential candidates to disclose their medical history; however, we currently have no mechanism to assess their past and present mental health.

A study carried out by Jonathan Davidson of the duke university Medical Center reviewed the biographical sources of the first 37 presidents who served from 1776 to 1974. The study found that half of these men had been affected by cognitive decline, which could have impacted their ability to perform their work.

Rumors often circulated about President Reagan’s mental state. The media often reported instances where he was dazed and confused during his two terms. Reagan was officially diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Quickly, the debate pivoted to whether he had shown signs of dementia while in the White House.
