This Week on World Report
Tuesday, May 5, 9:00 PM ET - Premiere

"Soccer is in the blood of every Italian. But now, an inordinate number of professional players are being struck down in their prime by ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Doctors are scrambling to figure out why."

I will record this and see what it says...there's not a lot of info on this website. May be really interesting.

Could be "locker room infection".

Google those words.

Is there some link between MRSA and ALS?

I was reading about how they aren't seeing the increased risk of ALS with any other sports in Italy, they mentioned basketball, volleyball, and one other.

Some staph infections have mutated to be antibiotic resistant to what used to destroy them.

It is sometimes referred to as "Golden Staph".

Lou G. was an athlete.

Hospital acquired? See first post.

Need UVB. Most powerful (and dangerous) wavelength. 2009 info:

http://www.breakthroughdigest.com/viral-infection-news/blue-light-destroys-antibiotic-resistant-staph-infection/

IMO, need to run a UVB light in the locker room (while the players aren't there) to "sterilize" the room.

Google these words:

UVB tanning beds - you will see most now are "balanced"... UVA AND UVB.

Now...when using any form of electomagnetic therapy it is vital to restore...Mg.

UVB can trigger cancer...we all know that, right? Esp. skin cancer.

But in Italy, a doctor named Valletta cured cancer using this:

Mg pyrophosphate (PPi) and sublingual B6.

He started by using IV doses.

Is Mg pyrophosphate available?

I've tried to find it.

Far infrared looks to help "supply the PPi" (2 phosphates added to ADP -> ATP, then we need Mg...

soonermon-
Well, basketball, volleyball, ice hockey & handball aren't played on a field of Grass!
American-style "football" is not particularily popular in Europe, but for those that Do "Hike!", the players are 'covered up', head to toe.

And so they are in baseball- full length pants, socks & shirt!
{Hmmmm... soccer.. bare legs...}
Maybe a 'TBD'... ya THINK?

Well.....that's what I thinking too!! Usually practice fields aren't as "manicured" as the playing field either. It probably makes as much sense as anything else.

I will see what the program comes up with.

Bb attacks and infects our DEFENSE cells.

Whatever pathogen causes ALS is impacting THESE cells: motor neuron.

There is a danger in trying to link every disease to Bb - triggering.

Believe me...there are MANY OTHER pathogens out there (bacterial, viral and fungal) that cause or lead to very serious diseases.

I remember hearing about an American who got a tick bite while hiking in central Italy, and acquired Lyme and several coinfections.

Their ticks might have something more virulent that directly leads to ALS.
