Hypothesis- amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)- caused by Mycotoxins (secondary metabolites) of mold.
In this article I will show the connection of Mycotoxins exposure to the symptoms of
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)- by using published scientific papers.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
Early signs and symptoms of ALS include:
- Difficulty walking or doing your normal daily activities
- Tripping and falling
- Weakness in your leg, feet or ankles
- Hand weakness or clumsiness
- Slurred speech or trouble swallowing
- Muscle cramps and twitching in your arms, shoulders and tongue
- Difficulty holding your head up or keeping good posture
ALS often starts in the hands, feet or limbs, and then spreads to other parts of your body. As the disease advances and nerve cells are destroyed, your muscles progressively weaken. This eventually affects chewing, swallowing, speaking and breathing.
ALS doesn’t usually affect your bowel or bladder control, your senses or your thinking ability. It’s possible to remain actively involved with your family and friends.
