“We now know the cause of MS. It’s no longer a mystery,” said Dr. Hafler, who was involved with the new study.He also hopes the new research can help quell “hysteria” surrounding the theory MS is caused by blocked neck veins.
In this latest genetics study, researchers did identify two genetic variations that are involved in the metabolism of vitamin D.

Until I read/hear differently .... from Professor Zamboni ..... I will accept this situation.
as for CCSVI ...... the theory is that blocked veins in the neck cause reduced exit flow of blood from the brain. This in turn causes some kind of injury to the brain. The autoimmune system then activates to - I venture a guess - repair a foreign substance that has broken through the blood brain barrier .....
the theory is that rectifying blood flow to normal volumes ..... allows the brain to function .......
Simple ? Yes. It just makes plain ..... sense.
