with millions more the Baby Boom generation about to enter the age of greatest risk for the disease. Without a cure, the Alzheimer's Association estimates that between 11 and 16 million Americans will have Alzheimer's disease by 2050.

The Alzheimer's Association urges Baby Boomers and all Americans to "Maintain Your Brain." There is increasing evidence that changes in lifestyle and health habits such as those that help the heart exercising, eating properly, and controlling blood sugar levels, weight, cholesterol and blood pressure may also benefit the brain.

"When we ask Americans to 'Maintain Your Brain,' we're also asking them to learn what we know about Alzheimer's disease, understand the great progress made by the medical research community, and join us in advocating for a renewed commitment to research and improved care for those with Alzheimer's disease," Goldberg added.

The Alzheimer's Association is the world leader in Alzheimer research and support. Since 1982, the association has funded more than $150 million in Alzheimer research. Through its national network, the Association advances research, improves services and care, creates awareness of Alzheimer's disease and mobilizes support. Visit www.alz.org or call 800-272-3900.
