    According to a study done by the American Academy of Neurology, children who have 5 or more siblings have a 39% percent chance of developing Alzheimer's disease than children with fewer siblings.  This finding was based upon the fact that children from large families tend to grow up in impoverished environment where there is inadequate nutrition and other factors which precludes the brain from achieving complete maturation.  This brain impairment means that the brain functions less normally than it would had the environment been less impoverished.  Here's the link -------->

      Luckily they have a great big family to help take care of them as they age.
