OK, this isn’t exactly fresh news, as it has been reported by others, but it has been suggested that there is a Norwegian Gene causing MS. Personally, I have a very strong Norwegian line; and look much more Viking than German (my other, and stronger, ancestry). As much as I would like to blame my Norwegian ancestors I do not think it is a genetic link. On the other hand I blame their freakish eating of Lutefisk, which has certainly significantly damaged the family line. I know my grandmother partook of this horrible concoction, so it definitely isn’t that far removed. It couldn’t possible be healthy, and is probably neurotoxic; multi-generational neuro-toxic!!! 😉 I fully concur with the quote: “Lutefisk is the Norwegians’ attempt at conquering the world. When they discovered that viking raids didn’t give world supremacy, they invented a meal so terrifying, so cruel, that they could scare people to become one’s subordinates.” Ugh, or should I say Uff da!
