Some Minnesota lawmakers hope to force the release of Lou Gehrig's medical records, saying they might provide insight into whether the Yankees star died of the disease that came to take his name or whether repetitive head trauma played some kind of role.
He said his views are guided heavily by the work of Dr. Stanley Appel of the Methodist Neurological Institute in Houston, one of the world's leading ALS researchers, who was dismayed to hear that the lawmakers are questioning whether Gehrig died of Lou Gehrig's disease.
"I fail to see what virtue this would have," said Dr. Rodney Howell, president of the Rip Van Winkel Foundation, which was founded by his father-in-law, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Sr., who was Gehrig's personal physician.
