Health secretary Jeremy Hunt recently launched the 'dementia friends' scheme in central London. The government wants to train a million people in England by 2015 to become "dementia friends", able to spot signs of the illness and help sufferers. It is part of plans to raise awareness of the condition, which affects nearly 700,000 people in England.
By 2004 there were nearly 800,000 French people with dementia, including a growing proportion of women and 18% of all people over 75. More than 165,000 new cases of dementia were diagnosed annually, with an associated life expectancy of eight years.
Germany dementia statistics:Affects 1,200,000 people at the moment (70% women, 30% men)experts estimate for the year 2030 2,500,000 people affected by dementia
every year 200,000 new cases of dementia are diagnosed
The prevalence of dementia among individuals aged 71 and older was 13.9%, comprising about 3.4 million individuals in the USA in 2002. On the basis of these estimated prevalence rates, it is estimated that there are approximately 684,000 people with dementia in the UK, representing 1.1% of the entire population. Of this total, 562,000 are living in England, 55,000 in Scotland, 36,000 in Wales and 15,000 in Northern Ireland. Because of the demographic changes set out above, the number of people with dementia in the UK is expected to increase to 940,000 by 2021 (a 28% increase) and 1,735,000 by 2051 (a 154% increase).
Prior to 1980 No awareness of AD and dementia; Conclusion Long-term exposure to PM2.5-10 and PM2.5 at levels typically experienced by many individuals in the United States is associated with significantly worse cognitive decline in older women.
A report for Alzheimer's Disease International, published in The Lancet, found a new case of dementia arising every seven seconds. It estimated 24.3 million people currently have dementia, with 4.6 million new cases being diagnosed each year as the population ages.
By 2040 the number is predicted to have risen to 81.1 million.
Neil Hunt, chief executive of the Alzheimer's Society In Japan as of this year, people aged 65 or older now number an estimated 30.8 million — an increase of about 7 million in the past 10 years.
In 2011, 747,000 Canadians were living with cognitive impairment, including dementia - that's 14.9 per cent of Canadians 65 and older. By 2031, this figure will increase to 1.4 million.
Conclusion Long-term exposure to PM2.5-10 and PM2.5 at levels typically experienced by many individuals in the United States is associated with significantly worse cognitive decline in older women. Short-Term Particulate Pollution Exposure Linked to Significant Brain Damage Typical of Ageing, Memory Loss, and Alzheimer’s Disease. A recent study finds brain damage typical of ageing and memory loss after short-term exposure to vehicle pollution A new study reveals that after short-term exposure to vehicle pollution, mice showed significant brain damage. Many reports in renowned medical journals have proved a direct correlation between the air pollution index, strokes and dementia, so the government should set stricter safety standards on PM2.5 and PM10 to protect people’s health. From this they conclude researchers, it appears that a large proportion of the extra strokes on fine dust and exhaust fumes from road traffic is due to airborne traffic pollution.
Even without the brain damaging stroke and dementia place data close to the Nurse’s Health Study of nearly 20,000 women over the age of 70 years. Most would agree that polluted city air is unhealthy and is the source of respiratory problems and allergies. However, according to two new studies, published on February 13 in the Archives of Internal Medicine, air pollution can cause strokes and memory loss. One study explored the link between air pollution and stroke; the other reported a link between air pollution and cognitive decline in seniors.
Now with hundreds of other worldwide scientific and Epidemiological studies confirmed results just think what Tameside Council has and is subjecting its population too.
All Tameside Councillors,MP`s and Council Executives should be dispensed with urgently because of their direct callous complicity in allowing air pollution to reach extremely dangerous levels. Because they know the facts and have done for years I believe their actions have been and still are deliberate criminal acts against Tameside society and its time with all the established evidence and their deliberate sustained lack of care,they should be removed from any involvement in Public administrations, quangos, and committees.
Because they deliberately and knowingly hid their Real Time Monitoring Station away from sources of pollution each Councillor/MP are definitely guilty of crimes against society including present and future generations.
I can only sum the facts up by stating these callous actions and deliberate gross negligence implemented have originated from an Administration whose members because of their actions should be classified as absolute sick and evil cabal who are totally unfit for any administrative duty whatsoever.
(So to my local MP and your on-line mouthpieces, this is not a rant or a load of bul----- but an exposure of what you and friends are deliberately doing towards Tameside children which is an abuse of their bodies and their internal organs which makes you and your colleagues absolute low life's compared with the majority of Tamesiders.)
