Can our environment play a part in the development of Alzheimer’s? (KPCC-FM)

KPCC-FM featured research from Caleb Finch of the USC Leonard Davis School on how environmental factors interact with genetic factors to increase or reduce risk for Alzheimer’s disease. “Nobody had pulled this together, and that’s what our contribution is: to get people to recognize and begin to think of environmental factors, many of which can be improved in lifestyle, to reduce the genetic risk of Alzheimer’s,” he said.
