Article of interest (1): change in sex ratio of MS

Over the next few months I will blog about a series of MS articles that I consider very important; important enough to shift or even change the paradigm*.

Orton et al. Lancet Neurol. 2006 Nov;5(11):932-6.

This study showed that the female to male sex ratio by year of birth has been increasing for at least 50 years and now exceeds 3.2:1 in Canada.

"The incidence of MS is increasing; particularly in woman. Why?"

* Paradigm: a worldview underlying the theories and methodology of a particular scientific subject.
