From the Wiki link-
"Here's some background on the idea of modifiable risk. According to the Lancet Journal (2017):
Alzheimer's includes about 65% non-modifiable risk (meaning genetic) including only 7% contributed by the ApoE4 allele, so about 58% of your AD risk is attributable to OTHER genes."
I find this so helpful to know. Some of the articles we see online make out APOE4 to be the be all and end all, but it's not, and this helps get that in context.
