The Disease ALS

Many people think that Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a rare disease. However, the risk of developing ALS and dying is around 1: 400 in Germany. Over the age of 50, this risk is considerably higher. 200,000 of the currently 80 million inhabitants in Germany will die of an ALS. (Source: Charcot Foundation)
