The Canadian Prime Minister is on the case for his veterans with ALS http://www.globalnews.ca/money/Harper+vows+action+vets+with/3542115/story.html
The big question that is just begging for an answer -- Have there been any studies looking at the incidence of ALS in military veterans other than U.S. military?
Is the increased incidence an American phenomenon? It would seem that the answer to that question would yield huge clues as to possible causes of ALS.
Does anybody know? Anyone?
