Is This Finally Our Launching Pad To a Comprehensive Registry?

The story about the prevalence and incidence of ALS around the Kennedy Space Center in Florida is starting to spread.

Perhaps this will finally get our national attention and national action to get to the bottom of ALS.  Simply counting noses... all of them... will be a good start.  We Americans have a love of the whole idea of space exploration.  Those flight data systems gather bazillions of data points so that the smart people at NASA can conduct safe and effective missions.  Now it's time to gather some data so that citizens can conduct safe and effective lives.
