Pocket of ALS patients around Intel plants in Oregon

I opened a new power supply for some gizmo i had, inside was a little piece of paper that said this product can or will cause cancer. Everything around us. [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/sad.png[/img]/emoticons/sad@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20"> probably even this keyboard.

I was watching this show on the Rockefeller and Morgan's and they said all they wanted was the Kerosine (sp) and the by product was Gasoline. which they had no use for at the time, because its was so flammable. So they dumped it out. On the ground, in the rivers, wherever they could. For 20 some years all those oil rigs just dumping gas in the ground water.

I find this very interesting as well. 20% of ALS is genetic or at least it was in 1994. There was also a theory that ALS can be trauma induced as well. My late FIL died from it. His sister died from it and my husband died from it. All suffered trauma before onsetin one form or another. But you can still count in genetics. I just find it strange that it is revolving around Intel. Maybe that will give researchers some questions if not some answers to this horrible disease.
One of the trends in ALS research is looking at populations where there are pockets of the population where incidence of the disease is higher and not genetically linked. According to the article the incidence of ask among plant workers and residents was statistically higher than the general pop particularly in years when the plants were at high levels of production.

With research into a cure focused on genetic factors, findings like these could change the way they look at the disease. For example if non genetic cases result from injury to the body/brain/nervous system, perhaps the cure could be found in mitigating that trauma.

There is a scientist looking into a toxin created in blue-green algae, which has effected the island population of Guam. The indigenous population has 100 times the incidence of ALS and Parkinson's disease. When their diet became westernized and they stopped eating a particular seed the cases of the diseases markedly declined.

That's all I know. These damned research papers are so difficult to understand without a science background.
I think all research is good research. Things have changed since 1994. I think it sucks that there are pockets of people developing the disease. That means it is toxins that are causing it.
Intel is trying to get permitted to release more chemicals into the air. Meanwhile, the Japanese find hard elements in the hair of ALS patients.

If my son is accepted to Lewis and Clark I will have to think long and hard about sending him if this problem persists.
