Confusing MS news

Tuesday, 30 March 10

I’m glad they’re doing a lot of research on Multiple Sclerosis, but this new info is just confusing: “The ultraviolet (UV) portion of sunlight stimulates the body to produce vitamin D, and both vitamin D and UV can regulate the immune system and perhaps slow MS.” Okay… but the heat from sunlight aggravates the other symptoms like malaise and chronic fatigue. Sigh. Perhaps one can just get UV rays from those tanning beds and not have the heat. What do you do about skin cancer, though?

Chicken and the egg. Read more about it here:  Exploring the link between sunlight and multiple sclerosis at the Science Daily website.
