Study: Stress Does Not Lead to Multiple Sclerosis


A new study published in this week´s "Neurology" suggests that stress does not influence a person´s risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS).

"While we´ve known that stressful life events have been shown to increase the risk of MS episodes, we weren´t certain whether these stressors could actually lead to developing the disease," study author Trond Riise explains.

As the study showed, stress does not affect our immune system, which is said to be involved in multiple sclerosis. 230,000 people took part in the research.

Personally I feel stress has a heck of a lot to do with health.

maninblack2, about the last sentence in your summary...
maybe you misread or the source article has been edited since you posted but they never deny that stress affects the immune system. they claim the study denies any strong link between stress being a cause of MS, although it is a major factor in causing episodes.

Well, if living closer too the equator reduces the risk of developing MS, Maybe it is caused by solar radiation. Pretty sure more of it reaches the poles due to the earth´s protective magnetic field.

An ignorant thought, digest it well.

  Drug test people with MS  
I suspect a high incidence of amphetamine, caffeine, and nicotine use. Some people with MS have been cured with bone marrow transplants. The bone marrow is where the body produces a lot of immune factors. This may suggest that their immune system may have become corrupted.
