A-myo-trophic comes from the Greek language. "A" means no. "Myo" refers to muscle, and "Trophic" means nourishment - "No muscle nourishment." When a muscle has no nourishment, it "atrophies" or wastes away. "Lateral" identifies the areas in a person's spinal cord where portions of the nerve cells that signal and control the muscles are located. As this area degenerates it leads to scarring or hardening ("sclerosis") in the region." These Are The Discoveries That Made Stephen Hawking Famous http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20160107-these-are-the-discoveries-that-made-stephen-hawking-famous "Stephen Hawking is probably the most famous genius of the modern age. But what exactly is he famous for - apart from his astonishing resilience to an incapacitating disease, that instantly-recognizable retro-robotic voice, and his walk-on roles on The Simpsons and Star Trek?" How Has Stephen Hawking Lived Past 70 WIth ALS? http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/stephen-hawking-als/ "The famous theoretical physicist has helped to bring his ideas about black holes and quantum gravity to a broad public audience. For much of his time in the public eye, though, he has been confined to a wheelchair by a form of the motor-neuron disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). And since 1985 he has had to speak through his trademark computer system-which he operates with his cheek-and have around-the-clock care." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

Rohan F: so basically the video doesn't answer the question. Is it because the title lacked a question mark at the end?

James O'Connor: Sadly, he did not believe in God. Now that he's with God, I hope he feels differently.

waxogen: We learn about life back-words, but we live life forewords

carlo fraiia: He lived so long because he is an imposter

Alien from Mars: how did eat from the mouth. knowing that only one muscle in his bldy worked!? how did his heart work. and his lungs worked without machines. why there are videos of him ( eating). knowing someone with his condition would need a G tube or even a J G tube!! was he just a dummy and someone else was talking and spreading his venomous ideas and athiesm!!

MrMixculture: 🤣🤣🤣

Toy Freaks: F

Lukeamania: Stephen Hawking was awesome on that episode of Star Trek the Next Generation.

Marco Rubio: He died just this year. What an aweful disease. He was a complete vegetable by the end. I would ask God to take me rather than suffer like this.

ghost flowerr: Stephen never believe in god and I believe in got but anyways I never forgive him

Cody Pine: Control alt del humanity

sami chartouni: Rot in hell you lying luciferian

lostn65: TLDR: we don't know.

petrichor: I wonder if his theories are really accurate; if Hawking was supposedly so intelligent one would think he would have spent his time finding a cure for ALS.

Conrad Green: God did it

Corrine Gaffin: i was diagnosed 2011. i was diagnosed with the bulbar form of ALS and was given one year to live. My symptoms progressed quickly. Soon i was having difficulty breathing, swallowing and even walking short distances. With the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using diet, herbs, which i feel has made the most difference. The ALS natural formula immensely helped my condition, it reversed my ALS. my slurred speech. And then the inability to eat without getting choked, breathing, and coughing. gradually disappeared.
