Nearly 10,000 more people died of Alzheimer’s disease in the United States last year than in 2013, a significant rise of 8.1 percent, according to US health data released Wednesday. Global health authorities have warned that cases of Alzheimer’s — the most common form of dementia — would soar along with the aging population in the coming years. But whether the latest data shows a true rise in Alzheimers death, or just a more frequent accounting of Alzheimer’s as a cause of death, remains a matter of debate.
