My Grandad had it. Awful disease.
Shame that some people would rather take the easy option of trying to bump off people with it than try and find a cure.

"One of the great challenges of our time" is the "quiet crisis" of dementia
Others are HIV AIDS and multiple drug resistant TB. Any words of great wisdom from the nation's finest?

On the BBC 6pm news the audience at this conference looked uncomfortable as Cameron started by explaining his Downing Street dinners. It was a double blow as it was an embarrasment for him and it detracted from the important subject of the conference. He looked uncomfortable. Not good.

AIDS has done quite well for research over the last 25 years.. there is more to be done I know. TB was almost dead in this country and it has been imported again, from Asian immigrants mostly. The problem now is that penicillan is no longer effective, although new drugs are being trialled. There is so little known about dementia, when it kicks in, how it affects people and too many doctors who just write it and the people off when it happens. I am pleased this is being highlighted - for too long the poor man of medicine. Dementia, not Alzheimers did for my father - but the GP care was negligent and nobody sort to look for underlying problems like a heart condition, or to treat it, just writing everything off to the dementia.

There's another crisis of dementia particularly affecting those in the political class. It causes them to do utterly demented things like ovethrowing a friendly regime in Libya to replace them with Islamists, for example.

Cameron was right to focus on this awful disease.
Shame that the press were interested in other matters.

Perhaps we can do nothing about dementia for the moment, but immigration control would have a dramatic effect on HIV and resistant TB.Our political elite are so reluctant to even try to control these scourges which threaten the public.Their minds are dominated by racism.

Makes you forget your political principles and which dodgy donors you have had round for tea!
It is sad, but perhaps inevitable as industrial diseases and cancer have been significantly reduced, that we all wear out in the end. the worst aspect however will be the "hard working families" wanting to dump granny in a home at the expense of thers, just because granny is getting rather forgetful and they want the house. That will be Dave's next move to appease these people rather than telling them that maybe they should accept their family responsibilities and be grateful that granny ahs lived a long life.
