Diet Rich in Fruits and Vegetables Linked to Fewer Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis
A study, published in the journal Neurology, suggests that eating a diet that includes many fruits, vegetables, and whole grains connected with the reduced disability and fewer symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
For the study, a team of scientists examined the questionnaires completed by 6,989 people with multiple sclerosis as part of the North American Research Committee registry. The scientists found that people in the group with the most healthful diet were 20% less likely to have more severe physical disability than people in the group with the least healthful diet.
The study author Kathryn C. Fitzgerald, working in the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, concludes: “While this study does not determine whether a healthy lifestyle reduces MS symptoms or whether having severe symptoms makes it harder for people to engage in a healthy lifestyle, it provides evidence for the link between the two.”
