  • 2. Last year they spent another 40% on salaries.
  • 3. There are people working at the MS Society of Canada who make more than our Prime Minister…..
  • Their contribution to RESEARCH in their last fiscal period DECREASED by $1 million dollars, whilst their salaries INCREASED by pretty much the same amount.

  • . . .correlation of areas of low Magnesium in the soil and water to areas of high MS rates. Magnesium is needed by the immune system, the autonomic system and various other body functions. It is also used to process Vitamin D which is correlated to MS

  • Canada 291 cases per 100,000 in 2013 - up from 132 per 100,000 in 2008
  • Ecuador 3.2 per 100,000 (90X less than Canada)
    Near equator and at high latitude
    Thus not too hot to be outside where there is lots of vitamin D (equator and altitude)
