1. Malek AM, et al. (2015). A potential association was found for exposure to ambient air concentrations of suspected neurotoxicant hazardous air pollutants, specifically aromatic solvents, among place of residence in 2002 and 1999 and risk of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. 1,1,1-trichloroethane | 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane | 2,4-dinitrotoluene | Acrylamide | allyl chloride | Arsenicals | Benzene | Cadmium Compounds | Carbon Disulfide | Carbon Tetrachloride | Chloroform | Cresols | Cyanides | ethylbenzene | Ethylene Dibromide | ethylene dichloride | Ethylene Oxide | Hexachlorobenzene | hexachloroethane | Hexanes | hydrazine | Lead | Manganese Compounds | Mercury Compounds | Methyl Chloride | Methylene Chloride | Nickel | Polychlorinated Biphenyls | Selenium Compounds | Styrene | Tetrachloroethylene | Toluene | Trichloroethylene | Vinyl Chloride | Xylenes Controls for disease:Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis | Subjects with disease:Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis United States 1,1,1-trichloroethane | 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane | 2,4-dinitrotoluene | Acrylamide | allyl chloride | Arsenicals | Benzene | Cadmium Compounds | Carbon Disulfide | Carbon Tetrachloride | Chloroform | Cresols | Cyanides | ethylbenzene | Ethylene Dibromide | ethylene dichloride | Ethylene Oxide | Hexachlorobenzene | hexachloroethane | Hexanes | hydrazine | Lead | Manganese Compounds | Mercury Compounds | Methyl Chloride | Methylene Chloride | Nickel | Polychlorinated Biphenyls | Selenium Compounds | Styrene | Tetrachloroethylene | Toluene | Trichloroethylene | Vinyl Chloride | Xylenes Details Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
2. Kim JS, et al. (2003). We conclude that exposure to Agent Orange is associated with various health impacts in Korean Vietnam veterans.

3. Beard JD, et al. (2016). Genes and Environmental Exposures in Veterans with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (GENEVA) We evaluated associations between military-related factors and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis using data from a case-control study of US military veterans; among some of the positive associations (needing confirmation) were exposure to military herbicides, military nasopharyngeal radium, and Agent Orange. Agent Orange | Defoliants, Chemical | Radium Subjects with disease:Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis | Veterans United States Details Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
4. Kamel F, et al. (2012). Agricultural Health Study (AHS) The meta-analysis suggests that amyotrophic lateral sclerosis risk is associated with use of pesticides as a group, and our analysis of Agricultural Health Study data points to organochlorine insecticide use in particular.

5. Vinceti M, et al. (2010). Based on these results, coupled with other epidemiologic data and with findings from animal studies that show specific toxicity of the trace element on motor neurons, we hypothesize that dietary intake of inorganic selenium through drinking water increases the risk for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. diet Aluminum | Arsenic | Cadmium | Chromium | Copper | Iron | Lead | Lithium | Manganese | Selenic Acid | Zinc Study subjects Italy water, well Aluminum | Arsenic | Cadmium | Chromium | Copper | Iron | Lead | Lithium | Manganese | Selenic Acid | Zinc Details Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
6. Bove FJ, et al. (2014). We found elevated hazard ratios (with wide confidence intervals) at Camp Lejeune for causes of death from cancers of kidney, liver, esophagus, cervix, multiple myeloma, Hodgkin lymphoma, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; however, because less than 6% of cohort had died, long-term follow-up is necessary to comprehensively assess effects of drinking water exposures at the base. diet Benzene | Tetrachloroethylene | Vinyl Chloride | Water Pollutants, Chemical Military personnel United States water, drinking Benzene | Tetrachloroethylene | Trichloroethylene | Vinyl Chloride Details Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis | Death | Esophageal Neoplasms | Hodgkin Disease | Kidney Neoplasms | Liver Neoplasms | Multiple Myeloma | Uterine Cervical Neoplasms
7. Yu Y, et al. (2014). Commercial pesticide (occupational exposure) and fertilizer (residential exposure) were both significantly associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in a randomly selected set of patients; these results need to be interpreted cautiously given the small sample size and the lack of direct exposure measures, but they suggest that environmental, occupational, and residential factors warrant close attention in studies examining risk factors for this disease.

8. Su FC, et al. (2016). In this study, persistent environmental pollutants measured in blood were significantly associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and may represent modifiable disease risk factors. Flame Retardants | Pesticides | Polychlorinated Biphenyls Controls for disease:Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis | Subjects with disease:Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis United States plasma 2,2',3,5,5',6-hexachlorobiphenyl | 2,2',4,4',5-brominated diphenyl ether | 2,2',4,4'-tetrabromodiphenyl ether | 2,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl | beta-hexachlorocyclohexane | Chlordan | Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene | dimethyl 2,3,5,6-tetrachloroterephthalate | hexabromodiphenyl ether 154 | Hexachlorobenzene | PCB 180 | pentabrominated diphenyl ether 100 | pentabromodiphenyl ether | pentachlorobenzene | Polychlorinated Biphenyls | tetrabromobisphenol A Details Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
9. Laidlaw MA, et al. (2015). Legacy petrol lead emissions are associated with increased motor neuron disease death trends in Australia; further examination of the 20 year lag between exposure to petrol lead and onset is warranted. Gasoline Australia air, ambient Lead Details Death | Motor Neuron Disease
10. Fang F, et al. (2010). Genes and Environmental Exposures in Veterans with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (GENEVA) | Veterans with ALS and Lead Exposure (VALE) In summary, we found that elevated blood lead level was associated with higher odds of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis among US veterans, regardless of bone turnover or ALAD genotype. Lead Subjects with disease:Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis | Subjects with disease:Motor Neuron Disease | Subjects with disease:Muscular Atrophy, Spinal | Veterans United States blood Lead Details Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
11. Lee CH, et al. (2010). We conducted a cross-sectional study of coastline residents exposed to heavily soaked contaminated areas of crude oil (from a tanker spill) and found significant increased risks of various acute physical symptoms (headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, hot flushing, sore throat, cough, runny nose, shortness of breath, itchy skin, rash, and sore eyes).

12. Vinceti M, et al. (2013). These results suggest that excess selenite and human serum albumin bound-selenium and low levels of selenoprotein P-bound selenium in the central nervous system, which may be related, may play a role in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis etiology.
