If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

MS, ebv, hygiene increase together in Mexico City (study)

High anti-EBNA1 antibody titers appears to be associated with increased MS risk even in a region where MS had historically low incidence and infectious mononucleosis is rare, providing further support for the postulated role of EBV in MS etiology. We also found moderate support for a role of higher ‘hygiene’ being associated with susceptibility to MS.

Interestingly, this is one of those equatorial regions in which MS numbers are supposed to be low (allegedly) due to high sun exposure/vitamin d.

The finding of "moderate support for a role of higher ‘hygiene’ being associated with susceptibility to MS," could signify decreased vitamin D levels in that oils washed from the skin contain the vitamin D (D being oil soluble) formed in the skin. Apparently, it takes as long as 48 hours for all of the vitamin D to be absorbed through the skin.
