A new study by the nonprofit RAND Corporation suggests that dementia is the most costly disease in the country to treat.
FOX News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports:
Cancer and heart disease are bigger killers, but a new study in the 'New England Journal of Medicine' shows that Alzheimer's and dementia are far more expensive to treat.
Costing Americans between $160 to $215 billion a year.
The study shows over four million Americans suffer from dementia, but researchers say the most troubling part of the report is America's aging population with fewer younger people in care-giving rolls.
