Ps and Qs

Has prior ALS research addressed these possible factors? You may laugh, but these are things I want to check. For starters, I am going to look in the list of abstracts at the bottom of this page:

-Number of children patient has
-Age of patient's mother at birth
-Birth order
-Sleep deprivation
-Lactose intolerance (not likely, as this is regional)
-Cardiac arythmia
