Hi Lalaw !! I think this should be o.k. to post on here as it's strictly an ALS forum but you might add this to your favorites and check it out as it's the best site for ALS research and interaction with others who are researchers and those with the disease.

I think you'll find it interesting.

Regarding Parkinson's, there a link between Parkinson's and my disease, Gaucher's.
http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/583839

They're currently studying the link and the enzyme involved (it's a lysosomal deficiency disorder, particularly the enzyme glucocerebrocidase)
There could be some very interesting stuff coming out in the next few years regarding treatment for Parkinson's.

I just read this today about a clinical study in London showing that certain vegetables, fruits and teas have protective compounds (Flavonoids) that protect against Dementia and Alzheimer's.
