Default Re: Research Question about the Origin of ALS

No one has been able to identify what triggers ALS. Yes it is true that Veterans are twice as likely (still a remote chance) of having ALS then the general population. Heck there are some theories that there are multiple causes of ALS but since we can not identify the cause and the syndrome is the same it all gets lumped as the same disease.

As far as cleansing your body you can find that type of info all over the web but none of it has proven to be true and most are proven to just be scams.
