Read your last post about high als concentrations for low population numbers. Interesting. There is also another region in Italy like that, where they think there is a genetic link. But overall, the genetic tie to als is relatively small, as it is understood at this point. Environment, chemicals, agent orange exposure in Viet Nam etc. are all being looked at. Any piece of this puzzle is worth investigating.
There are a lot of Canadians in our little club here, have you noticed? Contact Ottawa Girl. She is very knowledgeable and very friendly, especially to her fellow Canadians.
