The Genetics of Alzheimer’s and Why Its a Choice

Kashif Khan


  • Why genetic tests that tell you Alzheimer’s risks are wrong.
  • What are they really saying if you go beyond the surface level science.
  • What have you learned in clinical practice that people can take advantage of.
Heather Sandison, N.D.

Welcome to this episode of the Reverse Alzheimer’s Summit. I’m here today with Kashif Khan. He’s the Chief Executive Officer and founder of The DNA Company, where personalized medicine is being pioneered through unique insights into the human genome. Growing up in Vancouver, Canada as an immigrant, in an immigrant household, Kashif developed an industrious entrepreneurial spirit from a young age. Prior to his tenure at The DNA Company, Kashif advised a number of high-growth startups in a variety of industries. As Kashif dove into the fields of functional genomics as the CEO of The DNA Company, it was revealed that his neural wiring is actually genetically designed to be entrepreneurial. However, his genes also revealed a particular sensitivity to pollutants. You can see why I have him here to discuss this on the Reverse Alzheimer’s Summit. Now seeing his health from this new lens, Kashif has doven even further and started to see the genetic pathways that led to his own family’s challenges and the opportunities to reverse chronic disease like dementia. His measure of success is not in dollars earned, but in the lives improved. Kashif, welcome.
