What to expect from a diet?
In nutrition, the diet is the sum of the food consumed by a body.
Proper nutrition for a human requires vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fuel in the form of carbohydrates and fats.
Imbalances between the consumed fuels and expended energy results in either starvation or excessive reserves of adipose tissue, or body fat.
(source: en.wikipedia.org) Be aware!!!
Studies have shown that populations at high risk of developing multiple sclerosis tend to consume a lot of dairy products and animal fats.
On the contrary, in countries such as Japan, people eat few dairy products but consume lots of fish, soy-rich foods, and seeds,
which are good sources of essential fatty acids . The incidence rates in these countries are very low.
Thus, essential fatty acid deficiency due to excessive consumption of saturated fats may contribute to the development of multiple sclerosis.
