MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS), A RATHER dangerous and painful disease, is the apple of many medical researchers’ eyes today due to its many fascinating, yet strange, properties.

As Dr. Krafterion, a leading expert in biology and what he calls ‘cheese-brains’ says, “Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological disease affecting the Central Nervous System, which are the nerves in the brain and spinal cord.”

This destruction of the myelin sheath is commonly known as demyelination, which will cause patches of rough, scarred tissue. From here the name Multiple Sclerosis was born, as ‘skleros’ in Greek means hard.
All four doctors agreed that Multiple Sclerosis is an auto-immune disorder, a condition in which the immune system will attack the body’s own cells. This is due to complications in Helper T-Cells, which facilitate the actions of the immune system and notifies it of invaders in the body.
