Vitamin D Deficiency and Multiple Sclerosis

 There is an epidemic in Scotland of Multiple Sclerosis and I want to share a link to a wonderful Campaign there. It's called Shine on Scotland and it's worth a look because this is a concern for our whole world.

Research has shown that people  with Vitamin D Deficiency are at a higher risk of developing MS. MS is an autoimmune disorder where the body attacks brain tissues and nerves. Comparison of those living at varying distances from the equator shows it is somewhat rare for folks closer to the equator to develop MS. Some studies seem to indicate that those having MS are more likely to have been born in Springtime so a larger percentage of time in the womb was during the winter.
