According to the Alzheimer's Association and the National Institute on Aging, more than 4.5 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease; by 2050, it is estimated this number will nearly quadruple. Currently, there is no known cure to stop the degeneration of brain cells, the hallmark of Alzheimer's.
