If you look at their determination, it's nothing more than a list of how long the drug has been in use. The oldest ones have the worst record and the newest ones are the "safest". hogwash. How many people have died from Rebif? How many have died from Tysabri? I think Tysabri has killed closed to two hundred people, (and the documented cases are arguably grossly deficient). I don't think the shots have that kind of death rate. Aubagio shreds your liver. Gilenya can stop your heart. But those are safer. I don't buy it.
COMPLETELY agree. A study is only as good as the facts it is based upon, and the database they drew conclusions from is horribly flawed.
Regarding diet I tried a fruit and vegtables only diet and became anemic, had terrible energy levels, and needed to take regular naps. When I upped my calories and started eating meat again I improved significantly, even my MS symtoms faded. Don't believe the fad diets and scare tactics out there, do what makes you feel best. I have vegan friends and with the exception of one they are the unhealthiest people I know. Thin, weak, pale and overall sickly looking. I eat a high calorie, high carb, high protein diet that restricts saturated fat to less than 15g a day and feel great. Meat is not bad for you, humans are omnivors, and many of the essential amino acids we need come from meat. That said I do not eat red meat as it exceeds my sat. fat limits, but take a "magic pill" that keeps my iron at a healthy level.
