According to the United States census, 9% of US population has served in the military, yet 17% (almost double) of the ALS subjects in THE HEALERS campaign first ALS scientific research study have served in the military. This finding is consistent with Harvard University epidemiological studies. Only 19% of the military veterans in THE HEALERS ALS study have been in combat zone.
Before I read the combat zone statistic, my hypothesizing was on chemical exposure and on psychological stress factors that the nervous system can only handle for so long. Only 19% of our military veterans faced combat, so my mind naturally moved towards psychological factors. Then, Chris Marcella, a military veteran with ALS, told me this, “I attribute it to vaccines, as they have aluminum, formaldehyde & thimerasol in the vaccines they give us each & every year. Plus, it is the only common denominator across all services, regardless of age, career field, etc…”
Chris raises a good possibility. I happen to believe that psychological factors play in, at least based upon my observations of every case of ALS that I have looked at deeply. The renowned Dr Gabor Mate reports from his much more impressive experience, reports a similar story. I very much would like to at least have some advisory consultation with my future research to demonstrate this. He has yet to reply.
I will be eager for you to read the research paper of Dr Pagnini and myself, which we will be submitting on September 15th for peer review at Frontiers in Psychology journal.
