THE ILLNESS & THE ODYSSEY

For many of us, it’s only a matter of time. By 2030, one in four Americans over 65 will have Alzheimer’s disease—the best known of a family of maladies that attack the brain. Though the global medical community is hard at work testing drugs and other treatments that will go beyond merely treating the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases, medical efforts are challenged to keep pace with the anticipated epidemic. It is a race against time—a race to find the cause that might lead to a cure. The answer may well be found on the small island of Guam in the South Pacific.
