Obese Women Age 18 to 20 Found to Have Over Twice the Risk of Developing Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple Sclerosis Patients' Own Stem Cells Might Reverse Early Stage MS, plus more MS news

I found some Multiple Sclerosis news in the right sidebar worth noting.

First is a finding that researchers in a small study...
