Alzheimer’s disease: Chris Hemsworth, 40, reveals huge life changes after shock deadly disease test result

Chris Hemsworth has overhauled his life since he discovered he could be prone to Alzheimer’s disease.

The Hollywood hunk, 40, received the shock diagnosis after taking a genetic test on the National Geographic documentary series Limitless with Chris Hemsworth last year.

The test revealed he has two copies of the gene APOE e4, which is linked to an increased risk of the debilitating disease.

‘You’re constantly thinking you’re going to live forever, especially as a young individual. Then to be told that this might be the thing that might take you out was like, whoa—it kinda floored me,’ Hemsworth said on the show.

Following the test, Chris made changes to his already extensive workout routines and now focuses more on his brain health.
