Hi, is anyone else here from SK? I've heard that we have the highest rates of MS in the world, is this true?

Acording to the information that I can find, Canada does have the highest incidence of MS.

When you look at distance from the equator etc, along with diet, probable low vit D, it's no great surprise.

Yes! I live in Saskatchewan, north of Saskatoon... Are there others here benefiting from the OMS info? -- Tim

There were reports a few years ago that the Orkney Isles (off the north of Scotland) was credited with this title. Before that, it was Alberta, Nova Scotia.

This article is from 2012:

It certainly lends weight to the theory that lower Vit D levels are a factor in the occurrence of MS.
