nOT mUCH TO sAY

April 22, 2014

But I was thinking about this:

What is ALS—and is there more than one form of it?
ALS, which is also known as a motor-neuron disease—and colloquially as Lou Gehrig’s disease in the U.S.—is a neurodegenerative disease. Each muscle is controlled by motor neurons that reside in the brain in the frontal lobe. These are controlled electrically and are synaptically connected to motor neurons that reside lower down in the brain—as well as motor neurons that reside in the spinal cord. The guys in the brain are called the upper motor neurons, and the guys in the spine are called the lower motor neurons. The disease causes weakness of either upper motor neurons or lower motor neurons or both.

And I was thinking about how much electromagnetic pulsed energy these put out:

And that most military personnel have at least one of these things around them looking for bad guys 24/7.  Which got me reading about this

Why Me?’ Vets Face Much Higher Risk of Lou Gehrig’s Disease

U.S. veterans carry a nearly 60 percent greater risk of contracting ALS than civilians, according to a white paper published in 2013 by the ALS Association, citing Harvard University research that tracked ex-service members back to 1910. That alarming disparity has prompted the Pentagon to devote $7.5 million annually to hunt for ALS causes and treatments. The investment includes a $2.5 million grant made April 1 to the Cedars-Sinai Regenerative Medicine Institute in Los Angeles to test a promising therapy in lab animals and, perhaps later, in humans with the disease.

Which got me to thinking back to those 25 or so pulsed microwave radars on Guam

And the 50 to 100 times greater incidence of Motor Neuron/ALS disease in the locals

Guam is known for incredibly high rates of a degenerative disease which has some of the hallmarks of motor neuron, Parkinson’s and dementia, but cannot be firmly identified as any of them.Among the Chamorro people on the island, rates of the mysterious condition run at between 50 and 100 times the “normal” rate of motor neuron disease found in other communities.

That’s all. Not much to say but I wanted to let you know what I was a think’n. I ain’t no BioElectricBrainChemist so I couldn’t say I’m right, just a hunch.
