Gut-Bacteria-and-Motor-Neuron-DiseaseMotor neuron disease (#MND) describes a group of diseases affecting the nerves in the brain and spinal cord that gradually stop messages from reaching the muscles, leading them to weaken, stiffen and waste.  MND is life shortening and there is currently no cure.
