Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Treatment Mebane NC

ALS acts relatively quickly, progressively killing neurons controlling voluntary muscle movement. While no cure or effective treatment currently exists for the invariably fatal disease, a new scientific study signals that diets high in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs, aka omega-3 and -6 fatty acids) and vitamin E may play a role in the prevention of ALS.

A-Plus for Good Fats & Vitamin E

By Kris Kucera

When New York Yankee’s captain, Lou Gehrig, handed his team’s lineup card to the umpires on May 2, 1939, his name, which had appeared on 2,130 consecutive game-day rosters, was conspicuously absent. Diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) shortly thereafter, Gehrig succumbed to the disease two years later.

ALS acts relatively quickly, progressively killing neurons controlling voluntary muscle movement. While no cure or effective treatment currently exists for the invariably fatal disease, a new scientific study signals that diets high in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs, aka omega-3 and -6 fatty acids) and vitamin E may play a role in the prevention of ALS. Using a 104-question survey, researchers from the University Medical Center Utrecht and Wageningen University, Netherlands, examined the diets of 132 ALS patients, versus those of 220 control subjects. The ALS patients had significantly less PUFAs and vitamin E in their diets than the controls, possibly making them more susceptible to ALS. The findings indicate that PUFAs and vitamin E work in concert to protect neurons, making the people who regularly consume them 50 to 60 percent less vulnerable to ALS than those who don’t.
