If only we could identify the root cause (or causes) of MS.
I’ve often wondered about ecological pollutants. I’ve seen reports that point to the use of certain kinds of agrochemical controls as a possible link, such as pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. Who knows? Maybe there’s something in the water.
The mind reels to consider all the possibilities.
Today, more talk emerges that a cause for MS might literally be found in the air we breathe.
The latest insights
The May 26 edition of U.S. News & World Report shared new theories about links between air pollution and MS.
At the center of these latest theories? Dr. Roberto Bergamaschi, director of the Multiple Sclerosis Center at the IRCCS Mondino Foundation in Pavia, Italy.
