This week I spent some time reading. I was directed by a friend to the site ALS Untangled. It is the work of Dr. Richard Bedlack at Duke University. In a journey that is fraught with frustration and puzzles, Dr. Bedlack has decided to investigate all of the "wacky" options. It is fascinating reading, and it further builds the case that ALS is an individual disease that attacks everyone differently, and therefore we should be open to many different approaches to fight it.
One of the recent posts on his site is a study from Columbia University on the impact of diet on ALS progression. It is a fascinating piece of research – looks like smoothies are going to be a staple!
