I like to think that we’re all more than some of our parts. But, our genetic code has us all fooled. Each and every cell has a genetic code that come to think of it probably has a lot more to say about our lives before, now and after than we’d truly like. We don’t debate that genetics have a role to play in the development of cancer, but MS has always proven to have a complex...
