A report published by the Alzheimer's Association finds that 1 in 3 U.S. seniors dies with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. The rate of Alzheimer's-related deaths jumped 68% from 2000 to 2010, while deaths caused by heart disease and other major illnesses have dropped, the report finds. "Urgent meaningful action is necessary, particularly as more and more people age into greater risk for developing a disease that today has no cure and no way to slow or stop its progression," Alzheimer's Association president Harry Johns said.
