What do you know about Alzheimer’s?

What do you know about Alzheimer’s disease? Let this video give you a little more information about the facts surrounding Alzheimer’s.

Today is World Alzheimer’s Day, a day dedicated to informing the general public about the little known effects and dangers of this serious health problem. In the U.S. alone, 5.4 million people suffer from this disease, and this number is rapidly rising as a new person develops it every 69 seconds.

While the main effect of Alzheimer’s disease- memory loss- is commonly known about, many people don’t know how the disease develops and where it comes from. The truth is, medical professionals and scientists don’t know either. At this point in time, there are no known sources, prevention methods, or cures for the disease.

You can, however, eliminate one of the factors that increases your risk of developing Alzheimer’s. All you need to do is take good care of your teeth and gums by brushing and flossing thoroughly and appropriately and by visiting your dentist for regular dental cleanings and checkups every six months. Sounds simple enough, right?

Research shows that periodontal (gum) disease is directly linked to an increased chance of developing Alzheimer’s, as well as other serious health problems, including diabetes, heart and cardiovascular disease, and risk of stroke. If caring for your smile decreases your chances of developing these health complications (plus others) later in life, will you take the time to do it?
