Global prevalence of MS : Western vs Non-western diet

Postby Jan43 » Sun Mar 11, 2012 11:02 pm

Have been searching the internet to see if somewhere is collated the incidence of MS in various countries in the world, (ie ? / 100,000) particularly say Mongolia, North Korea or similar, anyone not eating Western food. I know diet is a critical factor but would be fascinated if there are statistics out there somewhere. Any thoughts? :?
