A "Disease" which is not even a disease. An illness that gradually destroys the motor neurons in your body. Eventually the sufferer wont be able to do anything. The Hollywood actor, David Niven had the "disease". There is no known cause of the illness, nor a cure, but there is research going into the prospect of using stem cells to recreate the savaged motor neurons, but it's not yet known if the disease will destroy the new ones too. Has nothing to do with shakey hands.
