This article is dire need of a complete rewrite. First of all dementia is not a disease. Second dementia is not commonly known as clinical insanity. The sentence on diagnoses and treatment is completely wrong. The statement on a disproportionate number of scientists etc. suffering from dementia is junk. The final sentence is, to be quite honest, offensive. I'll work on rewriting the article. I might even source the claims I add to the article, something that the original authors couldn't be bothered doing in a clear violation of the Conservapedia commandments.
I apologise in advance for the tone of these comments but I cannot think why someone would write such tripe about such an important subject without even bothering to look at a single reference. People living with dementia have enough on their plate without the callous and thoughtless assertions of the authors of this article. I shudder to think that someone would look at this article in its current form to find out about dementia. Authors, please engage brain before adding to articles such as this.
