How much do you know about Alzheimer's? One in three seniors die with Alzheimer's or dementia related disease, though you can actually have it as young as age 30 to 40 years old.  There is no cure, it is always fatal, and it appears to be something that people inherit, though there may be a link between people with brain trauma and the onset of Alzheimer's. There also may be a link to heart health. In Alzheimer's the brain shrinks and loss of functioning occurs during the final stage which can last a few weeks or a few years, depending.
