not just sunshine but civilization environmental toxins industry etc.
I think there's also a genetic component. Oz was settled by brits- who have higher MS rates. Mostly native populations live along the equator (think Central America, Africa) The aboriginal people in Australia don't have MS, it's the white folk who came from Europe. Same in South Africa.
That said- toxins, viruses, antibiotics, metals, stress, saturated fats, high glucose, pesticides and all the modern civ. baddies promote autoimmune disease, inflammation and endothelial dysfunction. Genetic predisposition combined with environmental triggers....bang.
