High-Fat Diet Risks Multiple Sclerosis Relapse
Increasing Veggies Cuts Risk
A high-fat diet increases the risk of relapse of multiple sclerosis in children by as much as 56 percent, reports The Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry.

Inversely, each additional cup of vegetables per week cut the risk of the disease by 50 percent.
