Hemsworth was signed by Disney+ to shoot for a documentary show Limitless. The show focuses on the human spirit of pushing the boundaries to see if mind over matter body over circumstances can come out victorious.

As a standard protocol, a few tests were conducted on the Thor star. The results came out with his "worst fear."

Hemsworth is 8 - 10 times at a higher risk of getting Alzheimer's. He has two copies of the gene ApoE4, each from his parent.

"It's not like I've been handed my resignation, it triggered something in me to want to take some time off". said the actor.

"If you look at Alzheimer's prevention, the benefit of preventative steps is that it affects the rest of your life. It's all about sleep management, stress management, nutrition, movement, and fitness. It's all kind of the same tools that need to be applied in a consistent way." said Hemsworth.

The series is a documentation of Hemsworth pushing his body and body to the edge. Clearly, in the process, it did push him to the wall. However, this is a probability statistic, he so far is not an Alzheimer's patient.

The Marvel star could remove this test news from the show. However, to increase awareness in people about the disease they have kept it in the show.

The actor will be in the Mad Max sequel Furiosa along with the documentary. Chris is taking a break after finishing his work and flying down to his kids and partner in Australia.
