Australian study shows link between MS and birth month

From the MS Society website:
An Australian study published today (Friday 30 April) has shed further light on the correlation between vitamin D and MS.
The study, published in the British Medical Journal, shows that people born after the vitamin D-scarce winter months are roughly 30% more likely to go on to develop MS later in life compared with those born after the summer months.
