If we don't start finding a cure for this pancakes.

LOLHTML.

Anyway, at least we'll all be living long enough to get Alzheimer's.

If they don't have a cure ready, I want to be euthanized in the most extravagantly awesome way possible.

WHO'S WITH ME?!?!

Yeah, I think Subby's headline is just saying the same thing.

I'd like to be shot off on a one-way trip towards Mars as an experiment on human survival on long space journeys as my euthanization.

Eh, all the age-related diseases will see a massive increase in numbers over the next few years due to the baby Boomers.  No surprise.

Now, if the rate were tripling, that'd be unexpected.

Wasn't it just last year that treatments in  Alzheimer's were advancing closer to a cure?  Or, at least to a point were they symptoms were drastically reduced?

I'm getting to the point I don't want to read anything medical related ever again.

what happens when you survive and end up roaming mars with a walker, talking to rocks while eating space cheetos?

Every single one of you has my permission to shoot me dead if I ever get Alzheimer's.

If you don't know me, just start shooting random old people until you get to me.

Numbers, rate, whatever, it's scary nonetheless and since I'm 53 it's starting to frighten me.  What a horrible way to go.

I want to be dead before I end up like that.

Euthanasia should be legal.   I've had a good run and I don't want to burden others to extend my life a few pitiful months when the time comes.

/on the other hand, if they can plug me into some porn VR machine to keep me entertained, then I'll take those few extra months.

Let's just round up Alzheimer's patients and shoot them like zombies. I'm cool with that.

I'll find a nice spot to lay down and take a long nap.

"...if you want to spend some alone time, that's fine, but don't make that dominate your life,"

Why do people always pick on the introverts?  I can keep my mind very active without having to deal with people's petty drama all day, thankyouverymuch.

Ah, so, I see all the money spent on "longevity" research has been put to good use. Because fark quality of life, right?

There are different kinds of rates, though -- it depends on the terms you're relating. You can have, say, new diagnoses of Alzheimers per 75+y.o. citizen per year, which will remain pretty constant, or new diagnoses  of Alzheimers per citizen per year, which will go up, and which is a consequential statistic, in terms of the financial burden put on the average person.

Why hasn't more been done about seniors passing Alzheimer's onto other seniors?  Why can't they use condoms like the younger folk?
