The article reports on the study conducted by the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association concerning the significance of natural detoxification therapy on ALS patients in the U.S. Lead scientist Jeffrey Johnson from the University of Wisconsin discovered through mouse models with human gene for a familial type of ALS, that detoxification is effective against the chronic neuron-killing characteristic of ALS. This significant finding could delay the onset of ALS, extending life span.
