Alzheimers disease is becoming ridiculous?

Why is Alzheimer’s disease becoming more and more common and projected to affect more than a 200% increase of today cases by mid-century? I think that Alzheimer isn’t a real disease, I think that it has just been given to much power by all the people that worry about it. Why else is it increasing at such a huge rate and what other reason is there for the rates of Alzheimer to increase with the more research done on it and the more media coverage on it.
Also, why is it happening to people at younger ages?
