Salt is bad for people with multiple sclerosis

People with multiple sclerosis who eat a diet high in salt may face more complications than those who don't, according to the latest edition of the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry.

The study observed 70 patients with MS over two years and found the patients who ate a lot of food with salt were 3.4 times more likely to develop a new lesion than those who consumed low-salt diets.

The results suggest those who are suffering from MS should find ways to lower the amount of sodium in their diet.
