The Irrefutable Evidence that Diet can transform your MS Prognosis
Irrefutable evidence is, perhaps, a strong claim but, one I think you will find backed-up by many dietician, doctors and, indeed, Multiple Sclerosis patients all around the world. I, personally, believe it has transformed my prognosis over the last couple of years since I began taking my diet seriously. But, that, of course, is only circumstantial evidence.

The Multiple Sclerosis Diet Book: A Low-fat Diet for the Treatment of MS
by Roy Laver Swank and Barbara Brewer Dugan
Hundreds of new recipes for dishes that taste terrific but stick to the diet rules so important for controlling M.S. Now completely revised to conform to the latest medical research.
It has been said that patients on the Swank low-fat diet prosper because it is basically a healthy diet. It is the opinion of the authors, however, that the very close relationship of the progress of the disease to the amount of fat intake, and the marked intolerance tof the disease to animal and butterfat, argues for a direct relationaship of the fat intake not only to the clinical course but also to the basic mechanism of the disease.
Take control of MS; the symptoms can be reversed.
