Lou Gehrig's Disease - Motor Neuron Disease - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Thought it had been cured by now? Still no known cause. Still no cure. Still quickly fatal. Still outrageous.

That's My Horse!

There is a really troubling phenomenon in reports that we get from scientific meetings and publications these days.

If the presentation or report is positive, we get "we funded that research" messages from some ALS MND organizations.

In real life, we don't know if it was a $2 bet or a $2 million bet that it  placed.  A bunch of $2 bets can turn out to provide some pretty impressive advertising.

And we don't know if a not-for-profit shines kinder lighting on projects that it "funded."

Just an observation.  It's just another reason why we need better, centralized information on our not-for-profits' ALS research investment portfolios.
