Neurodegenerative Diseases

Neurodegenerative Diseases Icon

When neurons in the brain and spinal cord begin to deteriorate, the onset of neurodegenerative disease begins. As more and more neurons deteriorate symptoms and functions such as the ability to think clearly or walk worsen. In the U.S., approximately 5 million suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, 1 million from Parkinson’s disease, 30,000 from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and 30,000 from Huntington’s disease.
