I was not aware MS is a genetic disease. Care to provide sources?



Many possible causes for MS have been studied; a combination of factors appears to be involved
Slow-acting viruses, such as Epstein-Barr, could be involved
Researchers theorize that under certain conditions, MS may develop in genetically-susceptible individuals
Nutritional factors, such as fat intake and omega-3 fatty acids, may play a role in increasing or reducing one's risk of MS
Insufficient vitamin D and/or sunlight may also play a role
The reduction in parasites from different countries appears to be related to an increase in MS; individuals with parasites are less-likely to be diagnosed with MS
Smoking increases the risk of MS
CCSVI is a complex condition involving changes in blood flow from the brain back to the heart; some theorize this could be involved

It's not something I read, it was what my boyfriends Mom was told by her doctor.
