Alzheimer’s Disease Overview

Using at least four peer-reviewed studies (no websites), discuss what genetic factors have been identified in the development or maintenance of Alzheimer’s Disease. Summarize the studies, clearly stating the biological factors and how they influence the disease (ie., onset of symptoms, maintenance/severity of the disease, progression of the disease, etc.).
Reflection/Faith Integration (1-2 paragraphs):
