has recently added a new booklet to our home page entitled The Alberta Disadvantage
. This brochure demonstrates that the province of Alberta, Canada, the home of DIRECT-MS, has by far the highest rates of MS in the world: Prevalence 340/1000,000 ; Incidence 20/100,000.
Data and arguments are provided to support the argument that the main reason for the “MS Epidemic” is that all the main causal factors are present in Alberta, with low vitamin D supply being especially problematic.
For those of you not familiar with Alberta, an oft used expression of our government to promote the province is the "Alberta Advantage". This phrase is used to accentuate the affluence of our province and other virtues such as a low tax rate and a friendly economic climate. We purposely choose the title of the booklet as a play on the promotional slogan to maximise the literature's exposure and to hopefully capitalise on wealth of our province so as to more thoroughly address our dirty little secret.
DIRECT-MS also offers two previously published information booklets, Protect your family from MS
and Take Control of Multiple Sclerosis
. These booklets are in pdf format and a hardcopy can also be mailed to you, at no cost, upon request. To request a pamphlet, visit DIRECT-MS
and send us an email requesting so.
