The Truth About MS in Canada
Modern science is still working on discovering the exact cause of MS, but research indicates a combination of environmental and genetic risks being at play. MS can occur at any age, being more prevalent in women and affecting them three times as often as men.
It is estimated that 100,000 Canadians are living with MS and that 1,000 new cases are diagnosed each year. It must be noted, however, that the process of getting diagnosed with MS can be slow as doctors wait for evidence to build in the patient.
