Ok, using molecular biology from scientific studies we now know that ALS specifically affects the following either up and downstream in the human brain....
motor neurons, glial cells, agreggates, misfolded proteins, astrocytes, mitochondria, heat shock proteins, sod1, etc.

Ok, using molecular biology from scientific studies we now know that toxicosis from poisons such as heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, etc. specifically affects the following either up and downstream in the human brain....
glial cells, agreggates, misfolded proteins, astrocytes, mitochondria, heat shock proteins, sod1, etc.

Can someone please explain how my reasoning is flawed by assuming that two "diseases" with the same physiological effects can even possibly be one and the same animal to a smaller or larger degree and why this has not been looked at more closely?

Landguy,
You have the million dollar question. My husband tested high for mercury and lead in his system..has the diagnosis of ALS. The neurologists do not even want to look at his chemical testing. This plagues us....looking for answers...like everyone on this site.
