Years ago, a family member was diagnosised with Lou Gehrig's Disease.  At 
that time there was no defined reason or cause of the disease, and it was 
not considered a hereditary disease.  With the research over the last 20 
years, I am sure much has changed.  Is this still not considered a 
hereditary disease?  Thank you
