    Small Study on Diets

    Dr. Brandon Beaber goes over the results of a study on Diets. Quite interesting.

    Thank you, Marco. It is an interesting study.

    Bottom line - no MS diet is superior to the others, but all seem to be beneficial.

    Ample amounts of fruits, vegetables, fiber, and healthy fats appear to be the common denominator.

    Our findings in this sample of the Dutch population of MS patients confirm those of an international cross-sectional study, in which diets that were characterised by ample amounts of vegetables, fruits, fibre and healthy fats were associated with better physical and mental health [19]. Similar positive associations were found between intake of fruits and vegetables and disability and symptom severity in a survey including almost 7000 MS patients in the U.S.A.

    The study, in detail:
