In December, 2016, National Public Radio ran a story about a rare type of Alzheimer’s disease that has an identifiable gene mutation. Known as the Jalisco mutation, this disease strikes young–with early onset of symptoms beginning at age 40. 

While it’s not possible to predict Alzheimer’s disease, in the case of the Jalisco mutation, it is.
