1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Guam disease, found only on that small Pacific island, causes symptoms strikingly similar to Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's, and Alzheimer's diseases, but it is not hereditary.

Prior studies done by epidemiologists, toxicologists, anthropologists, and other neurologists have raised suspicions over the water supply, the soil, the local fish, and even the nuts of indigenous cycads. However, as scientists continue to study and hypothesize, incidence of this disease that has plagued the islanders for a century is dropping. If a cure is to be discovered-providing valuable insights into other neurological disorders-it will have to be soon, or Guam disease may disappear on its own
