So what is ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)?
It is a disease also known for the following names:
- Motor Neurone Disease (MND)
- Charcot Disease
- Lou Gehrig's Disease
Among the signs and symptoms of the disease are:
- Muscle weakness and atrophy throughout the body due to the degeneration of the upper and lower motor neurons
- Losing the ability to initiate and control all voluntary movement
Now what got me thinking is that, how has Stephen Hawking lived to 70s with ALS?
