    Andy,

    I am, sadly, cynical about the biome. It’s a fashion thing, leaky gut, without much solid science behind it. It’s really early days as well.
    I can see the early work just finding a mild Association but no actual pathway to that association. Along with the classic statement “More research needed”.

    I firmly believe all the focus should be on understanding the actual disease process and interrupting/slowing.

    I don’t really care about cause, I’d rather slow down. If we can slow it down, or abate it, it’s no longer a disease that kills.

    It’s analogous to finding why my classic mini rusts continually (design), rather than spotting the issue as it happens and treating it. The problem with MND is that the causes are almost certainly majority genetic based with numerous mild things which trigger the final disease. It’s not like lung cancer, which is 99% smoking.
