When I read the following quote that was posted as a response to the MS/CANCER survey, I felt the same way (when I posted the question).
“Cancer links [to MS]….seem like clutching at straws.”
But, I had read many published research articles that hinted at the possibility of MS and cancer being associated. So, I decided to keep clutching at straws in hopes of catching one.
There were a total of 183 respondents. Of these, the results are as follows:
A. 40 respondents had MS only; and there were no cancers in any family member.
B. 116 had MS only; but, there were cancers in family members.
C. 19 had MS and cancer along with their MS without cancer being in any cancer member.
D. 8 had MS and cancer along with their Ms as well as cancer in family members.
Further analysis is being carried out. When completed, we’ll do a webinar to share the findings and let you know what you can do about it.
