Sergey Brin, the co-founder of Google discovered that he carried a gene mutation-G2019S- that is tied to Parkinsons’s disease through the DNA company 23andme. With the family history of Parkinson’s disease that affected his mother and her aunt, and this result meant that he relatively has a higher chance of anywhere between 20%-80% to develop Parkinsons’s disease compared to an average person. But identifying this mutation early on has put him in a better place than an average person as will give him ample amount of time to change lifestyle and perform substantial research in the field before it may affect him.
