(pam) yesterday-- kron4 news brought you a story of a man who is living with the illness. today-- kron4's mark carpenter takes a closer look at a possible connection between the disease ... and head trauma. ever since dwight clark's announcement, one of the questions that's been presented-- does football cause als? to explore this, i spoke with the experts at the san francisco-based 'gladstone institutes'-- an organization that specializes in researching neurological diseases. chief specialist dr. steve finkbeiner says as of now, research does not show a definitive link between the sport and als. "that connection has been looked at in a variety of epidemiological
10:45 pm
studies. whether it's physical activity, physical fitness or some sort of head trauma and the studies don't agree basically. so some studies seem to suggest there may be a link and one or more of those dimensions may increase your risk for als, but others aren't able to replicate it." dr. steve finkbeiner...exp laining one of the frustrating aspects of researching a complex disease like als. one of the scientific links that has been confirmed over the last several years... is repeated shots to the head can lead to chronic traumatic encephelopathy. like als, cte is associated with neurodegeneration....however, the illnesses aren't intertwined. "we know that there's a clear connection between head trauma and changes that the brain undergoes that are connected to neurodegeneration, even if we don't have a specific path to als." a possible byproduct of dwight clark's increased als awareness. youou may remember the ice bucket challenge craze from 2014...a trend that went viral and raised millions of dollars for als research. fred fisher, president als association-golden west chapter, says clark's status as a public chance to advance scientific advance chance to figure has a as a public clark's status chapter, says golden west association- head trauma. disease ... and

manager carl valdez so the city created a hard closure at this point but something happened the first set of barricades were tossed over the edge of the road and the larger ones were bent over as if someone tried to drive over them then the city looked for a solution to that problem we tried to brainstorm what would keep people from going through tried to chain them together we did found any of these thrown over but we did find those moved aside and we say more and more tire marks. so then the city tried something else we had water filled barricades /and last weekend i got a call from one of my staff members say they moved the barricades so im thinking this happens every once in a whileno they're doing it every day but i never thought for a moment i would see a jogger it the road is closed why are you jogging through it i think its closed only for cars not for pedestriansyou mean this pedestrian and bicycles prohibited sign he had to jog past if there is a landslide and i die that's it oh btw i caught up with the jogger and showed him the sign
