Multiple Sclerosis is a disease, which causes the degeneration of the insulating covers of the nerve cells of the central nervous system. Affected individuals, usually diagnosed between the ages of 20 to 30, experience physical, mental and psychiatric problems. The symptoms can present either as isolated episodes or steadily worsening over time. The cause of the disease is not clear yet, although smoking has been asserted as a risk factor. There is no cure for it and treatment is often ineffective. Life expectancy of those affected is usually 5 to 10 years lower than non-patients'.
