Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ( ALS) is serious motor neuron diseases which falls in the same category as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, etc.
Exposure to some of the most common occupational chemicals has been shown to be associated with a 90% higher risk of developing ALS
It simply means the nerves have been severely damaged and paralysis is expected to result as the disease progresses.
Unfortunately, as with most diseases, medicine rarely if ever look for cause of disease but instead rely on the use drugs and surgery. So it is no surprise that they don't find one.
There's plenty of evidence in leading government journals proving as one example that folks with ALS have more heavy metal exposures like lead.
In addition, people with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) have more hydrocarbon exposures like jet fuel, as well as paint strippers, cutting, cooling and lubricating oils, stock-piled anti-freeze, de-icers or coolants like propylene glycol and even dry cleaning agents, auto exhaust, and chlorinated hydrocarbons like pesticides.
This simply means that exposure to some of the most common occupational chemicals has been shown to be associated with a 90% higher risk!
It is well documented that these toxins damage the nerve making them too toxic and poisoned by unavoidable environmental pollutants.
The problem is that detoxification may take longer than some of these folks have. Time is of the essence.
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis ( ALS), you want to immediately begin with a Cardio/ION test and GPL-TOX screen, then proceed to the heavy-metal detoxification using a far infrared sauna and detox protocols.
