You're pretty dam stupid saying something you don't know anything about. Familial Alzheimer's disease is caused by one of three gene mutations on chromosomes 1, 14 and 21. If even one of these mutated genes is inherited from a parent, the person will almost always develop FAD. My wife's grandmother had it, my mother-in-law and now my wife. My kids are scared about getting it too. Your remark was totally out of place and uncalled for. Be thankful you're not affected by it or don't have to be a caretaker. Stay with your dam rocks and your brain is probably just as dense.
