Dementia in 2050 – level 2

12-01-2022 07:00

Researchers published a study last week which said that the number of people with dementia would triple by 2050.

The study looked at 195 of the world’s countries and territories and it studied current developments in health laws and medications. Researchers said that by 2050, there would be 153 million people with dementia and that the number of cases would go up in all countries.

Dementia is a cognitive disease, which means that it changes thinking, learning, understanding, and remembering. There are physical risks to get dementia.

Researchers expect that there will be many cases in countries where there is a large population and the population is aging.

Difficult words: publish (to share a document), dementia (a disease of the brain), triple (to be three times as many).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
