Mayo Clinic Radio: ALS Awareness

Miss the show? Here's the podcast: Mayo Clinic Radio Full Show 10-11-2014 44min mp3

On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, Saturday, October 11 at 9 a.m. CT, we'll discuss Aamyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with Anthony Windebank, M.D. Often called Lou Gehrig's disease, ALS is a type of progressive motor neuron disease that typically strikes at middle to later life and causes nerve cells in the spinal cord, brainstem and brain to gradually break down and die. These nerve cells are responsible for muscle function, so eventually ALS can affect the ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. We hope you'll join us to learn more about this debilitating disease and what's happening with the latest in ALS research.

Myth or Fact:  Football players are at greater risk for ALS.

Researchers are helping to develop strategies to combat ALS.  Read more here.
