He said that the answer in the cure for Dementia lay in DNA mapping, claiming that it could also unlock a treasure trove of info to help tackle diseases from dementia to cancer, the Daily Express reported.

Plans are under way for the UK to become world's first country to map the personal DNA code called genome of up to 100,000 patients.

Hunt told the annual conference of the Local Government Association in Manchester that the project will be the medical equivalent of the invention of the internet in terms of its significance.
