Genetic risk factor for ALS

Important genetic risk factor for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
In the ALS group, 30.6 percent of the subjects carried the mutation, compared to 14.3 percent of those in the group without ALS.
That was in a study with 121 people.

They can't say that when you have this genetic defect, you get ALS, but it apparently makes you more prone to get it.
