Approximately 1 in 3 adults have either one or two copies of the apoE4 gene and therefore are at increased risk of Alzheimer’s When the brain environment is “stressed”, β amyloid is produced causing this programmed downsizing by removing dendrites and thus connections to other cells which results in loss of some functions The apoE4 variant […]
