The large majority (75 percent or more) of neural cells in a particular area of the brain are killed before any clinical symptoms of a chronic illness are noticed.

*Multiple sclerosis (MS)   *ALS   *Memory loss   *Hormonal problems   *Hearing loss   *Epilepsy   *Alzheimer's disease   *Parkinson's disease    *Hypoglycemia *AIDS   *Dementia   *Brain lesions   *Neuroendocrine disorders
