Over 12 million people have had their DNA analyzed by direct testing companies like 23andMe or Ancestry. Many have found out that they have ApoE4, a gene that significantly raises their risk of Alzheimer’s, but it’s no guarantee that a person will actually develop it. There are many other factors that can contribute to developing Alzheimer’s and, through lifestyle changes such as a healthier diet and increased exercise, those factors can be addressed and progression can be reversed.
Join Dr. Corinne Spencer to learn how this gene works in the brain, how it contributes to Alzheimer’s and find out how a neuroscientist, who has the ApoE4 gene, plans to keep her brain healthy.
