In a large, international study, each 10-degree increase in distance from the equator was associated with a 10-month decrease in age at onset of MS symptoms. Led by researchers at the University of Tazmania, the MSBase study group (an international database of neurological records of people with MS worldwide) looked at the records of more than 22,000 people with MS from 21 countries. Previous studies had found that more people are at risk for getting MS in areas distant from the equator.
