More About What Causes MS

In an earlier post I linked to a poll at This Is MS that asked if there is a correlation between getting red in the face after exercise and having multiple sclerosis. Such a correlation would support Paulo Zamboni’s idea that MS is due to poor blood circulation in the brain.

A poll at This Is MS is likely to be answered by people who have MS. Nancy Lebovitz realized she could help get answers from people who don’t have MS — crucial to learning if there is a correlation — by posting the poll on her LiveJournal page.

The two polls taken together show a strong correlation. Out of 40 people with MS, 72% get red-faced. Out of 27 people without MS, 22% get red-faced. Thanks, Nancy.
