Elderly Patients With Alzheimer’s Less Likely to Develop Cancer… and Visa Versa

Elderly patients with Alzheimer's less likely to develop cancer — and vice versa | Fox News.

This was an incredibly interesting article. Recently, some research was done in northern Italy where a rather large group of seniors (over 204,000) was studied over a six year period. The findings were that most seniors with Alzheimer’s didn’t get cancer and most seniors with cancer didn’t get Alzheimer’s. There was a small percentage that had both, but this was not typically the case. For more, check out the article. Really fascinating.
