Vitamin D and Multiple Sclerosis

I have some questions about Vit D and MS.

1) What is your opinion in the role Vit D may play in the development of MS? Vit D deficiency is sometimes seen in MS patients. Is this a proven fact?

2) Do people with normal Vit D levels develop MS too? In other words, if they had the proper Vit D levels their whole lives, would they go on to develop MS?

3) And what causes Vit D deficiency in a person?

4) Do you think that high doses of Vit D may help to alleviate symptoms and/or disease progression? If yes, what doses?
