What is amyotrophic lateral sclerosis?
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, is a serious neurological disease that causes muscle weakness, disability and eventually death. ALS is often called Lou Gehrig's disease, after the famous baseball player who was diagnosed with it in 1939. In the U.S., ALS and motor neuron disease (MND) are sometimes used interchangeably.

Worldwide, ALS occurs in 1 to 3 people per 100,000. In the vast majority of cases — 90 to 95 percent — doctors don't yet know why ALS occurs. About 5 to 10 percent of ALS cases are inherited.

ALS often begins with muscle twitching and weakness in an arm or leg, or with slurring of speech. Eventually, ALS affects your ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe.

Najczesciej sa robione z atlasu lub jedwabiu i powinny miec ten sam odcien, co sukienki wieczorowe na wesele. Jesli zostala wybrana suknia bez rekawow dobrze jest zalozyc rekawiczki dlugie lub poldlugie, natomiast do sukni z krotkim rekawem, rekawiczki krotkie. Do sukienki z dlugim rekawem nie powinno zakladac rekawiczek wcale. Bardzo kluczowym dodatkiem sa buty. Musza nie tylko genialnie pasowac do stroju, ale i byc wygodne.
