Senator Proxmire - Alzheimer's
>

William Proxmire, former Senator, and longtime fitness advocate, passed away this week at the age of 90 - a victim of Alzheimer's Disease. Mr. Proxmire was often heard advocating a healthy lifestyle and a strict exercise regimen. He credited his discpline, in fact, with contibuting to his longevity. Now that many ailments of the body may be combated with regimens such as the senator pursued -- Alzheimer's and other forms of cognitive impairment loom larger and larger as health spectres and a threat to our erstwhile longevity.

That's why early detection is so important. One suspects that with early intervention that the lifespan of 90 would be increased several years.
