    That is a good question so I asked it on the Alz Assn’s site and got a few reponse. This is the best answer I found by jellybeans
    I’d be willing to bet there are a few reasons. AD is relatively rare in some parts of the world. I found this study which stated low overall life expectancy was one reason, they just aren’t living long enough to get AD too often. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9781520
    I would imagine that in the US currently, the fact that it’s easy for seniors to get access to doctors to get diagnosed and the fact that people in the US live long enough to get AD are big factors in why the incidence of AD is higher in the US than in other places.

    Alzheimer’s disease is a some kind of brain disorder destroying neurons and connections in the cerebral cortex. It leads to short-term memory loss. Most treatments targets the depression, the behavioral problems and sleeplessness that often accompany the disease.

    Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurologic disease of the brain leading to the irreversible loss of neurons and the loss of intellectual abilities, including memory and reasoning, which become severe enough to impede social or occupational functioning. Alzheimer’s disease is also known as simply Alzheimer’s, and Senile Dementia of the Alzheimer Type (SDAT) .

    During the course of the disease plaques and tangles develop within the structure of the brain. This causes brain cells to die. Patients with Alzheimer’s also have a deficiency in the levels of some vital brain chemicals which are involved with the transmission of messages in the brain – neurotransmitters.

    Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. The disease gets worse as it develops – it is a progressive disease. There is no current cure for Alzheimer’s, although there are ways of slowing down its advance and helping patients with some of the symptoms. Alzheimer’s is also a terminal disease – it is incurable and causes death.
