Los Angeles (Daily Pakistan Online) actor Chris Hemsworth recently revealed that he has an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s due to a genetic predisposition. He announced that he will be taking a break from acting for some time. The Australian actor, 39, learned of the diagnosis while undergoing routine tests while filming a new documentary, which will be shown on Disney Plus.
According to NDTV, the ‘Thor’ actor has two copies of the APOE4 gene, which studies have linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. He emphasized, however, that this is not a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, nor does it mean that he will definitely develop the disease, but it is cause for concern.
“It really made me want to take time off,” the actor said during an episode of National Geographic’s Limitless. And since we finished the program, I’ve been completing the things they had contracted. Now that I’m wrapping up this tour this week, I’m going home and I’m going to spend a good chunk of time and make the most of this time. ‘
