Research Facts
The ALS Society of Canada was founded in 1977, and is dedicated to working "with the ALS community to improve the lives of people affected by ALS through support, advocacy and investment in research for a future without ALS." ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles. It is sometimes called Lou Gehrig's disease after a famous baseball player who died of it.

Research Facts
Finley Acker & Co., makers of Ackers Hygeia, were large grocery stores in Philadelphia from 1882 until 1920. They specialized in teas, coffees, candies, cigars, and various food items including those given the name "Hygeia": flour, buckwheat, and "Snowdrift" (a cereal).
Ackers Weekly was a publication sent out by the store every week to advertise products.
Finley Acker & Co. became known and loved for their delivery system, reasonable prices, and quality of goods.
The name "Hygeia" comes from the Greek goddess of health, and daughter of Asklepios, god of medicine. She is often depicted holding or feeding a snake, the symbol of Asklepios. In Greek, "Hygeia" means "soundness" or "wholeness", and health and hygiene were based around keeping the body sound and whole.
