Did Selma Blair get MS because she was vegan?
I read that the nerve is protected by myelin, which consists of saturaree fat and cholesterol. If the myelin is damaged, you get MS. So my question is, is veganism a cause of MS since these people don't eat much fat? Let alone enough of it? I mean even monkeys are not vegan ffs.

MS is more prevalent in inland states(in the US) and it has been suggested that the lack of vitamin D may have something to do with it. People in upper Midwest don't get enough sun for roughly 8 months of the year, lots of people have indoor jobs, not as many people live on farms where they work outdoors more and also don't eat as much seafood as states along the ocean.

No. Animals (including humans) produce their own cholesterol and fat. Also, there are several fatty plant-based products (nuts come to mind).

No. Absolutely no connection.Source(s): My husband has MS. We know more about it than we want to.

Of course not. Vegans live longer than meat eaters. It's a fact.

The cause of multiple sclerosis is unknown, but it's an autoimmune disease. I had a somewhat similar disorder called Guillain Barre Syndrome. And I've never been a vegan.
