Last week I watched a report on TV about the latest research into Alzheimers, and was surprised at the report., i.e., 1 in 8 Americans over the age of 65 probably have alzheimers!  The information came from a conference in Vancouver, to wit:  Newly Reported Research Advances From The Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC)(R) 2012.  Information from the conference can be read at:   http://news.yahoo.com/newly-reported-research-advances-alzheimers-association-international-conference-153205609.  Another interesting note on the website says:  'Gait disturbances - such as a slowing of walking pace or a more variable stride - could indicate a decline in cognitive function, according to new research studies reported at AAIC 2012. In general, the scientists found that gait became slower and more variable as cognitive decline progressed.'  The report on TV made a strong, strong case for doing physical exercise, such as walking, and I am into it; just finished 5 miles on my bicycle, which is much more fun than walking.

Looks like the URL for the report is wrong.  Try:  http://news.yahoo.com/newly-reported-research-advances-alzheimers-association-international-conference-153205609.html
