Greater risk of MS in babies born in May
This is disturbing news for a father of twins born in May living in Alberta, the Canadian province with the highest incidence of autoimmune diseases. The population sample for this study was derived from Canada, the UK, Denmark and Sweden. One theory is that this increased incidence is caused by low vitamine D levels in pregnant mothers due to low levels of sun light during a crucial period in fetal development.
