      Hi Matt, this was published in 2015. Also, the article does NOT say genes are not involved in MS. It says: “Genes do play a role, but they are not the be all and end all.”

    • Laura says:

      I agree with you that MS is genetic. I was recently diagnosed, and my cousin has had MS for years. I also believe my brother who just passed had it as well.

  1. Mark Hill says:

    Ughhhh… the usual rubbish, itself myth and speculation. It is not yet known whether MS is genetic, it may well be genetic. MS can certainly be a death sentence; J.K. Rowling’s mother would still be alive now, so would my uncle and thousands of others if it weren’t for MS. It’s a killer for some and not for others; depends how fast it moves. If people would face the fact that it can be a killer, there might be more urgency in finding a cure. Wish people wouldn’t publish inaccurate lists like this, it really isn’t helpful.

    • Maria Vega says:

      The genetic thing keeps bothering me, a lot. There are a lot of new studies that prove the correlation and hey, here I am! My grandfather had MS, he was diagnosed in 1949, and I’ve just been diagnosed, is not a myth. People wake up… is not a myth.

  2. KA says:

    Everyone can focus on ways to heal and repair the body to beat MS – however, no MS Dr will ever tell you that – too much money in it for them keeping us sick! We weren’t born with MS – something is off and out of balance with our body and we need to look at the root cause not suppressing our immune system with the most awful, deadly drugs. I know many people who have healed from MS. Please look to functional medical Drs who look at treating the whole body and are interested in you beating MS.
