Collectively, this is one of the biggest public health threats of our time. Over 35 million people are affected, and the global annual cost is $700 billion and rising — greater than 1% of global GDP.
Chandran shows two clips of one of his patients, John, who, speaking through a respirator, explains that difficulty breathing, in 2011, led to the diagnosis of motor neuron disease.
