Last night, in his first special since stepping down from his talk show, Larry King aired a segment titled “Unthinkable: the Alzheimer’s Epidemic.”
According to CNN’s website, Alzheimer’s Disease is “being called the disease of the 21st century as an estimated 5.4 million people have been diagnosed. It is the sixth-leading cause of death across all ages in the United States, but many Americans still do not know much about this illness.”
This one-hour special looked into Alzheimer’s disease, who gets it and why, the race to find effective treatments and a possible cure.
In an even more fascinating story that broke immediately after King’s special, it was announced that Osama Bin Laden had been killed by American forces. “Justice has been served,” said President Obama.
In the clip below, actor Seth Rogen talks to King about supporting his fiancée and her family as they deal with her mom’s early diagnosis at the age of fifty-five.
