Re: MS and environmental factors
I recently read that possible environmental factors are a theory that is being investigated, but as of yet, no identifiable determinations. It is interesting that specific latitudes, as well as ethnic groups and genders, are effected more than others.
As I understand, MS is not hereditary, but is familial. In other words, more than one family member may have MS, but the reason may not necessarily be because it was 'inherited'. Likewise, no gene has yet been identified.
