Choosing a healthy lifestyle may lead to fewer disabilities with multiple sclerosis (MS).That’s the conclusion of a recently published study in Neurology, the journal of the American Academy of Neurology.Almost 7,000 people living with MS participated in this study. It looked at the association between diet quality and intake of specific foods with regards to disability and symptom severity.

Specific diets — such as paleo, the Wahls protocol, weight loss plans, and other programs — were included, as well as activity levels and whether or not the participant smoked.

Researchers said people with the healthiest diet were 20 percent less likely to have severe disabilities compared to those with a less healthy diet.
