If you feel confused about what’s the best diet for MS, there’s a good reason! You may have noticed that suggestions, made by various “experts” over the years, have swung so wildly that some of the diets advised for MS are actually opposites of each other. Examples include the Paleo Diet (a modern approximation of the diet our Paleolithic ancestors ate) with an emphasis on meat, vegetables, fruits and nuts, versus the McDougall Program—a vegan approach that excludes all animal products but... more


Drinking green tea imparts many health benefits, ranging from improving heart health to reducing the risk of cancer.
