Nationwide surveys conducted in Japan over the past thirty years have revealed a four-fold increase in the estimated number of multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, a decrease in the age at onset, and successive increases in patients with conventional MS, which shows an involvement of multiple sites in the central nervous system, including the cerebrum and cerebellum. We aimed to clarify whether genetic and infectious backgrounds correlate to distinct disease phenotypes of MS in Japanese patients.... Read More - ... ageid/2325

Maybe change in diet accounts for the increased incidence of MS. The traditional Japanese diet based on rice, fish and vegetables protects, the "western" diet based on wheat, meat, and dairy (saturated fats) leads to immune system stress, vascular stress and venous blood reflux.

Why complicate things beyond the obvious? MS Cure
