This is a new direction for MS Society funded research-- and it's ABOUT TIME! Thanks to Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Ashton Embry, Dr. George Jelinek and my hero, Dr. Roy Swank. They didn't give up when neurologists mocked them. Food matters. And MS Society donors know that.

"Bruce Bebo, executive vice president of research at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, told Healthline that the task force was a result of both patient and donor requests for research on more than just pharmaceuticals and mice."

Here's a quote from the MS Society in the NY Times about "diet and whatever" in 2008:

Patricia O’Looney, vice president for biomedical research at the Multiple Sclerosis Society, said in an interview: "Eating less saturated fat and more fish oil is good for all of us. But we’d never suggest changing one’s diet in place of taking a therapy approved by the FDA."
“Thus far, no researcher has been interested in taking this (nutrition for MS) on,” Dr. Kalb said. “The medications seemed to show more promise.”

Yet, over and over, studies show that modifiable factors like obesity, nutrition, and intake of antioxidants from fruits and vegetables are all things that make a difference in MS symptoms and even progression. Enough with drugs showing "promise." This is real.
Researchers Now Focusing on Diet as a Major MS Treatment
Several clinical trials are beginning that will look at the effects healthy eating has on multiple sclerosis symptoms.
