Scientists believe that Multiple Sclerosis disease occurs because of some of environmental factors such as soil pollution. In this paper, relationship among Multiple Sclerosis disease, Molybdenum and soil properties in New Zealand and Isfahan, Iran has been investigated and from the point of view of nature of the soil for example pH and the distribution of disease was observed similarities.
