Gene found that might keep your brain sharp in older age: Study!

A new study by the researchers has found that those containing a specific type of gene CETP are more likely to have sharp and alert brain, even when you turn old. Through the same study, this fact has also crept out that people with particular type of gene CETP have fewer chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease in their older age. In order to gather these facts researchers tracked about 158 people who lived to 95 or beyond.

Personally, I believe that detection of this particular type of gene CETP can prove a major breakthrough for the researchers who have really been trying hard to develop better solution to fight diseases that mainly target our brain- functioning and among such diseases name of Alzheimer is well known.
