This week we're celebrating The 2014 National Wormhole Week hosted by fantastic authors - Stephen Tremp, Alex Cavanaugh and L. Diane Wolfe. Whole weekend I was thinking what I should write about and then I had a light bulb moment - nanotechnology!
According to Alzheimer Society Canada
- As of 2010, more than 35.6 million people worldwide are living with dementia, or more than the total population of Canada.
- The global prevalence of dementia stands to double every 20 years, to 65.7 million in 2030, and 115.4 million in 2050.
- Total health-care costs for people with dementia amount to more than 1 per cent of the global gross domestic product (GDP), or US$604 billion in 2010.
Of course there is a risk involved. Like with all technology there are sometimes unpredictable failures and sometimes that technology can be used by criminals to target and kill some individuals.
I gave you food for thought, now you can let your imagination go wild.
So long my friends,
