One in three British babies will suffer from dementia in old age. Dementia is when the brain no longer works because of illness or injury. People lose memories and forget things. Their personality changes. There could be a health crisis. There is nothing to slow down or stop dementia. We must do more research.

Dementia is a big problem. A doctor said: "More people will develop dementia in the future if action is not taken now." He said it was a big medical challenge and that we must find ways to stop it. About 36 million people worldwide have dementia. About 10 per cent of us will get it. This number will go up as we live longer.
