I've been to Sardinia, it's a beautiful island, great beaches and a gorgeous mediterranean climate. Lots of epidemiology studies have been done on Sardinians, because they are a genetically stable society. And their cancer and MS rates are much higher than the rest of Italy.
Either genetic predisposition or environmental to blame for MS in Sardinia- it sure ain't the sunshine or diet (lots of fish, olive oil, antioxidants)
Sardinia has an unusually large mining industry....maybe heavy metal toxicity?
