Health Alert: New studies find ways to drop Alzheimer's cases

(CBS)- New research presented at the Alzheimer's Association Conference suggests higher levels of education and better treatment of cardiovascular disease in the U.S. and in other developed nations could lead to a drop in Alzheimer's cases.  Doctors say there is evidence that these factors and working a mentally challenging job can improve memory and increase brain capacity and that, in turn, reduces the risk of developing dementia. 

(CBS)- A prescription pill's appearance may affect how patients take their med's. Researchers in Boston studied more than 10,000 heart patients and found the odds of a patient discontinuing prescribed treatment increased 34 percent after a change in pill color and 66 percent after a change in pill shape.
