Chris Hemsworth tests homozygous for the awful APOE4 Alzheimer's gene. Taking a break

He inherited both genes, and his risk of developing it is very high. 10x higher than normal.

That’s too bad, but at least he knows and can work on a lifestyle to help reduce the risk. And Alzheimer’s is a disease that a lot of research money is being poured into. There’s a good chance there will be better treatment as he ages into a higher risk category.

I hope so. He seems like such a good person.
