“Huntington’s disease (HD) ranks as one of the most severe neurological disorders. This ultimately fatal disease causes both physical and mental symptoms that lead to progressively more severe disability. Thankfully, Huntington’s disease is rare in comparison to other conditions. According to the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, today in America, approximately thirty thousand individuals are living with Huntington’s, while another 200 thousand are at risk. Risk comes solely from genetics, which means a person must inherit the disease and it cannot be transmitted or caused by environmental factors.”
