The U.S. Wants A Treatment For Alzheimer's By 2025

Filed under: HealthScience!

Alzheimer 2025

This is pretty ambitious, but we're all for ambition!

Especially when it comes to Alzheimer's.

The U.S. wants an effective treatment of the disease by 2025 — that means treating AND preventing.

For the estimated 5.4 million Americans with Alzheimer's, the Obama administration's first National Alzheimer's Plan to find better treatments for the disease and offer better day-to-day care for those afflicted will be a welcomed project.

Right now it's the sixth leading killer in the nation. By 2050, 13 million to 16 million Americans are projected to have Alzheimer's, costing $1 trillion in medical and nursing home expenditures.

AD is one of the scariest diseases we can think of, and wouldn't wish it on anyone. It's not only hard on those who have it, but those who have to take care of those who do.

We wish them the best in the quest for their goal, because we're going to need it.

Behold…The Planes Of The Future!

Check out the concept photos (above) to see what planes we COULD be using for travel in 2025.

Last year, contracts were awarded to teams at Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and Northrop Grumman by NASA. The teams were asked to create the perfect plane for 2025, which must be "silent and with low fuel consumption."

Here were NASA's requirements for the "perfect plane":

And each design has to fly up to 85 percent of the speed of sound; cover a range of approximately 7,000 miles; and carry between 50,000 and 100,000 pounds of payload, either passengers or cargo.

We LOVED the Lockheed Martin design, but the Boeing and Northrop Grumman concepts were pret-ty cool as well.

Which of these do U think is the closest to being the perfect plane?
