: I heard that if you have Down's syndrome then you're going to get Alzheimer's later in life. Is this true? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.
There isn't a solid evidence about this, I don't think. But if someone with down's lives past 40 year, then there's increased chance that alzheimer's will happen. But again, people disagree on this.
