A study of 500 ALS patients shows that smoking ups the risk of contracting the disease, and drinking lowers it.
Even more amazing, drinking alcohol more than halved the risk of developing ALS
The study was described as “well-done”, and reviewed by Andrew Waterhouse of the University of California, Davis, and other members of the International Scientific Forum on Alcohol Research.
However, this is not an excuse to drink alcohol to excess. ALS is such a rare disease anyway that such behavior is not recommended to curtail development.
