MS risk increases with virus, low sunlight
Researchers have stated that the risk of developing multiple sclerosis or MS can increase due to low levels of sunlight coupled with glandular fever.
At places that are away from the equator, the risk of getting the disease is even more and there are many suspected risk factors for MS.
The way body responds to infection depends majorly on the amount of exposure a body has to sunlight.
Seeing the number of admissions in hospitals in England, the already existing evidence to the above findings, has just become stronger.
North of England is more affected by this and about 10,000 people are affected by MS.
There is a disruption when it comes to messages given by the brain to the body and this leads in blurred vision, moving gets difficult and muscle gets weak. Due to myelin sheath getting damaged all these things happen.
From 1998 to 2005, the hospital admissions that happened in England, were looked at by the researchers at the University of Oxford.
The cases of glandular fever were about 14,621 and MS cases were found to be about 56,681 MS.
Professor George Ebers, from the University of Oxford, said, “It's possible that vitamin D, which is made when the skin is exposed to sunlight, deficiency may lead to an abnormal response to the Epstein-Barr virus.”
