Chris Hemsworth has recently declared that he has two copies of the APOE4 gene in his DNA. According to medical visits, he inherited the genes from his parents. This gene is a very important factor in causing Alzheimer’s disease. He decided to undergo genetic tests at the age of 39 and it turned out that he was the inheritor of this gene.
Hemsworth wants very much that this situation not to become even more difficult for him. He talked to the doctors who made it clear that many people are inheritors of this gene. The actor decided to give an interview recently for Vanity Fair.
The actor said that according to the doctors, the possibility of getting this disease was now 10 times more dangerous for him. He is worried about his health condition but hopes that everything will go well.
Also, this is not the first time in the show that this gene is in the actor’s family. His grandfather was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Hemsworth says that now he would lead a quieter life and that he needed to take some time for himself and his family. He wanted to spend more time with his children and his beloved wife.
He began to tell more about his feelings and shows that he is not ready to leave this world yet. The actor was offered an important role but he refused it. He wants to be a little more involved in the world of acting now that he made this important finding in his life.
However, he has not given up on his job and career. He is taking some time to rest and calm down after the recent situation.
