Are You at Risk for Alzheimer’s? Take the Test

“While genetics and family history of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) can increase the risk of developing AD, less than 5% of AD is associated with a direct genetic cause. An increasing body of evidence and the latest research is unequivocal that environmental triggers play the most influential role in the development of AD.”


Alzheimer’s disease is a specific cause of dementia and is a disease that destroys memories, and then basic functions of the brain. While dementia generally simply describes the loss of memory, reasoning and/or other thinking skills, Alzheimer’s is a specific form of dementia, the cause of which is not yet fully understood.

What does seem clear is that, with Alzheimer’s, two abnormal formations develop in the brain: amyloid plaques, and tangles of a protein called tau. While most people develop some of these over the course of a lifetime, in Alzheimer’s patients these plaques and tangles develop much more frequently and in a more predictable pattern.
