Sept. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Pat Wechsler talks with Mark Crumpton and Julie Hyman about the outlook for the global cost of treating Alzheimer’s and other dementias. A report from London-based Alzheimer’s Disease International says treatment will cost 1 percent of the gross domestic product globally this year, with seventy percent of an estimated $604 billion being paid in North America and Western Europe. The global price will exceed $1 trillion annually by 2030 the advocacy group said. (Source: Bloomberg)
