What you eat and drink may affect your MS

If you have multiple sclerosis, will drinking wine make the disease worse? How about smoking? Or eating fish? How do daily choices affect your condition?

Researchers from Belgium and the Netherlands wanted to take an in-depth look at some of the most common daily life choices, and learn how they affected the progression of disease in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).

The results were maybe not what you'd expect: Alcohol, coffee, and fish consumption reduced the risk of relapsing onset MS patients needing to use a cane to walk. Only smoking increased the risk.

The research was conducted by the National MS Center in Belgium, the Flemish MS society and the neurological and statistical department from the University of Brussels. Previous studies have suggested that lifestyle factors have an influence on how MS progresses, or worsens, in a patient....Read More - http://www.msrc.co.uk/index.cfm/fuseact ... ageid/2942

That's really the problem, why would anyone conduct a thorough study if there are no gains from the benefits of eating healthy. The medical community will squash any study that harms their mula. We are fortunate to have sites like this that inform the ms community. The ms'ers that are not that savvy towards the net need to get informed somehow. The last time I told my doctor about my diet he basically laughed, you can guess how often I went through him again.
