Tommy is a 43-year-old man who has Down syndrome. Recent research indicates that he is likely to develop
A) Parkinson's disease.
B) Alzheimer's disease.
C) Pick's disease.
D) multiple sclerosis.
Since I didn't know the answer, I Googled "Down syndrome facts" to get this:
People with Down syndrome have an increased risk for certain medical conditions such as congenital heart defects, respiratory and hearing problems, Alzheimer's disease, childhood leukemia, and thyroid conditions. Many of these conditions are now treatable, so most people with Down syndrome lead healthy lives.
In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
