The following article says that current DMTs (disease modifying therapies) do not alter the microglial activation which is the root problem. They only reduce the symptoms. Maybe this is the reason why ...

New research suggests that a healthy diet -- one that's chock-full of fruits, vegetables and whole grains but contains little added sugars and red or processed meats -- was associated with a reduced risk for disability.
