UPDATE: Dr. Tedone emailed The Inquisitr and wished to correct the misconception that the Deanna Protocol is a “cure” for ALS. He says the Deanna Protocol is “not a cure but it does slow down if not stop the disease progression. My desire is to get this information out to ALS patients sooner rather than later.” Dr. Tedone was nice enough to agree to an interview, so check back soon.
