Dementia is, without question, horrible. There's no way around it. It robs us of the essence of who we are. Currently, there are over 5 million people in the U.S. who have Alzheimer's, the most common form of the disease, and dementia racks up over $220 billion per year in family and friends' unpaid caretaking. Those numbers are expected to triple by the year 2050. Worldwide, there are over 44 million with the disease, and a new case is diagnosed every 4 seconds.

This documentary will be the first of its kind to investigate the science that is happening in labs and clinics today to help beat dementia. Because changes in the brain begin decades before Alzheimer's symptoms, the absolute best way to move the needle on this disease is through minimizing risk when it matters most.

True

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

The first few months after having a newborn are seriously stressful. It's tough to get any sleep and your entire schedule revolves around the needs of the baby.

It's expensive, too! It seems like you're constantly shelling out $25 for a box of diapers and $40 for a can of formula.

So it's understandable that a Facebook user who goes by the name of Chris Blaze asked for a deal when buying a Samsung washer and dryer set of a guy named Dave he met online.
