Abstract

Worldwide about 50 million people are affected by dementia and it is estimated that this number will increase to around 150 million by 2050 due to aging population.1 Low-income and middle-income countries will be particularly involved by this increase. On the contrary, in some high-income countries such as the USA, the UK and France, epidemiological data have recently observed a reduction of both prevalence and incidence rate.2 These favorable trends can be explained by the public health policies and preventive interventions aimed at improving specific lifestyle of people.
