Celebrities w/ MS

I have been looking up celebrities with MS and was able to find, Jaquelin DuPre, Richard Pryor, and Terri Garr. Jaquelin was a very long time ago, but Richard Pryor had only been Dx w/ MS for 15-19 years when he died. Was it the MS or was it his freebasing cocaine habit?

It is generally accepted that MS is a result of genetic susceptibility and an environmental trigger (perhaps a virus). At the EBV Think Tank I attended, Professor George Ebers talked about his work on identifying the genes involved in MS. I was still confused by the relative importance of the susceptibility genes and the environmental trigger, as a recent study of childhood MS in Canada suggested that the environmental factor was more important. ...
