Signs of deadly neurological disease in teeth, a Study Shows
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a condition that usually manifests when someone is in their 50s or 60s.
The cause is not known, and there is no test to predict its onset.
Genetic studies have not revealed a great deal yet, and while experts believe environmental factors play a big role in the development of the disease, there have been no clear indications of which ones.
A recent study from Mount Sinai and elsewhere found biological markers that relate to this degenerative and often fatal neurological disease.
