If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMFs)

Structural analysis of a replication protein encoded by a plasmid isolated from a multiple sclerosis patient
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6503762/

Abstract
Bovine meat and milk factors (BMMFs) are circular, single-stranded episomal DNAs that have been detected in bovine meat and milk products. BMMFs are thought to have roles in human malignant and degenerative diseases. BMMFs encode a replication initiator protein (Rep) that is actively transcribed and translated in human cells. In this study, a Rep WH1 domain encoded on a BMMF (MSBI1.176) isolated from a multiple sclerosis human brain sample was determined to 1.53 Å resolution using X-ray crystallography. The overall structure of the MSBI1.176 WH1 domain was remarkably similar to other Rep structures, despite having a low (28%) amino-acid sequence identity. The MSBI1.176 WH1 domain contained elements common to other Reps, including five α-helices, five β-strands and a hydrophobic pocket. These new findings suggest that the MSBI1.176 Rep might have comparable roles and functions to other known Reps of different origins.

Not all red meats are bad for you.

Few will dispute that fish (preferably wild caught) is considered healthy because of its high good fat content (omega 3s) and low bad fat content. Even Dr. Swank's diet included fish! 100% Grass fed/grass finished meat has very similar characteristics to fish and is totally different other than looks to modern grain fed meats. Interestingly, farmed fish and seafood gain the same bad fat characteristics as grain fed meats because they are fed grains.

Wild caught...

Wilderness is destructed,polluted and intoxicated. Wilderness don't exist anymore,except in paleo simulakrum.
We all have MS because of this polluted world.

Dear Elliot,do you think everybody on planet should eat wild caught salmon,because it has omega-3?

There is a mathematical problem with it.

Since most MSers are loaded with supplemented vitamins and minerals,I don't see a problem in going vegan.

Am I missing a point?

"Dear Elliot,do you think everybody on planet should eat wild caught salmon, because it has omega-3?"

Good question, IF you are going to eat fish, it should be wild caught in order to maximize health benefits.

I think that anyone with MS or a chronic illness should be on a high good fat diet. How you get it may not at critical as just getting it period. The evidence of the importance of Omega 3 fatty acids is out there. There are so many good sources for good fats in our diet. Since most people prefer NOT to eat fish regularly, especially salmon, I think the salmon population is safe for now!

Many many years ago I was a vegan for almost 5 years. Based on what I now know, being a vegan may not be the best diet choices for fully balance nutrition.

They're not safe from the proposed Pebble Mine. It threatens to turn pristine wilderness into a toxic wasteland and permanently impact Bristol Bay salmon fisheries.

This is an interesting study.

Vegan Nutrition for Mothers and Children: Practical Tools for Healthcare Providers
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6356233/

Abstract
As the number of subjects choosing vegan diets increases, healthcare providers must be prepared to give the best advice to vegan patients during all stages of life. A completely plant-based diet is suitable during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, and childhood, provided that it is well-planned. Balanced vegan diets meet energy requirements on a wide variety of plant foods and pay attention to some nutrients that may be critical, such as protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, iodine, calcium, vitamin D, and vitamin B12. This paper contains recommendations made by a panel of experts from the Scientific Society for Vegetarian Nutrition (SSNV) after examining the available literature concerning vegan diets during pregnancy, breastfeeding, infancy, and childhood. All healthcare professionals should follow an approach based on the available evidence in regard to the issue of vegan diets, as failing to do so may compromise the nutritional status of vegan patients in these delicate periods of life.


Omega-3 is not a problem,at least there is no evidence that ALA to EPA/DHA conversion is insufficient for normal functioning.

I don't think salmon will do anything for MS,except for some more mercury in the brain,wild caught mercury.

It is harder to get all nutrients from plants,but not impossible. So,at the end,it's just a choice.

Apparently salmon is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet.

It contains high-quality protein and has large amounts of magnesium, potassium, selenium and B vitamins (5, 6) and many other nutrients and of course Omega 3s.

Studies show that people who regularly eat fatty fish, such as salmon, have a lower risk of diseases like heart disease, dementia and depression.

Even farmed Atlantic salmon is high in Omega 3 (not as high as wild caught and certainly not as good for you nutritionally), or 2,260 mg in 3.5 ounces. (There are numerous issues with farm raised seafood and fishes and they should be avoided when possible - wild caught is a much better nutritional choice.)

And yes, there are many non-meat sources of Omega 3.

IMHO, when considering a diet and food consumption diet plan, the total Japanese diet should be carefully examined - the Japanese are among the longest living, healthiest groups of people on the planet, not eating a lot overall (very few Japanese are overweight) but consuming large percentages of specific foods. And they tend to do a lot of exercise as well (a lot of walking).
