A new, dire health prediction is out today. Experts are warning that one out of every three seniors in the U.S. will die with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.

Figures out today from the Centers for Disease Control show deaths from Alzheimer's have jumped 68-percent from 2000 to 2010. That's as deaths from other major diseases such as stroke and breast cancer have gone down.

Alzheimer's is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., and ranks fifth as the cause of death in people over 65.
