Well, while the link is to an NBC article about an Australian study, the image ran in an article in the Edmonton Journal, a Canadian newspaper, and the image itself is of a researcher in Cologne, Germany, and that article was primarily about a paper from the University of Ottawa, Canada.

It would seem "universal" is appropriate, but the real fascination with the subject appears to be of Canadian origin.
