alzheimers news-having this ancestry dna may help


in our family ancestry lore that was passed down in our family one of our distant relatives had married a native anerican princess
i had heard this many times from relatives talking about our ancestry 
my historian brother who is a well read self educated knowledgeable person expert on ancestry
he has solved several complicated ancestry mysteries eg helping someone find a lost loved one

after obtaining ancestry dna on all 7 siblings and the daughter of my younger brother who died from alzheimers disease
his conclusion
well the facts are
we have zero or 0 native american dna
we do have some north african dna

no native american dna for us
especially after i read this article on native american indian dna in mixed ancestry folks
it may offer some protection from getting alzheimers disease

i will provide my simple version of this
i suggest you read the article as they did a better job of explaining it

researchers found a region in the human genome of some folks with mixed ancestry that appeared to protect them from getting alzheimers disease

they looked at a group of caribbean hispanics with mixed ancestry of european native american and african origins
a portion of the native american dna seemed to offer some protection against alzheimers disease

this genetic diversity seems to protect these people from getting alzheimers disease
getting this segment of dna from a native american ancetry may protect you from this awful disease

if this is true
i sure wish that old ancestry tale passed down in our family was true
