  • According to a US survey, AD is the second most feared condition (MetLife Foundation).
    When asked which of five major diseases they are most afraid, 31 % said Alzheimer’s, while 41% said cancer. Heart disease and stroke were named by 8% each, while only 6% said they fear diabetes most.
    The survey, What America Thinks, was conducted by telephone with 1,007 adults by Harris Interactive for MetLife Foundation in September 2010.
    An international survey also showed that dementia ranked second only to cancer among age-related diseases people reported fearing most (BUPA Health Pulse 2010 Aging Societies: Challenges and Opportunities. 2010.).
    Funding indicates the annual support level for various research, condition, and disease categories based on grants, contracts, and other funding mechanisms used across the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as of February 2011.
