Hello, the real issue is are the issues surrounding dementia clearer, more accurate, inclusive of people living with the symptoms of dementia? More is not necessarily better, it's just more and more and more. There is no consesus, no growing consesus as to the cause of dementia. There are no universally accepted facts about this condition, other than aging brains sometimes include the symptoms of dementia.

Everyone wants easy answers to simple questions, when in fact there are no simple questions, and thus there are no simple answers. TV looks to simplify things to 15 seconds or a minute at the most. Dementia does not lend itself to such simplicity. We didn't need a study to tell us coverage of dementia has increase, as has the stigmas and myths about dementia and the folks who are living with it.
