Does childhood diet impact future MS?

22 February 2021

A recently published work by MSWA funded researcher Dr Lucinda Black from Curtin University suggests that dietary intake during childhood could affect the development of MS as an adult. The results of Dr Black’s research study revealed that consuming fruit and yoghurt across all of the age groups studied (6-20 years) and consuming legumes (such as lentils, beans and peas) between the ages of 11-15 years, was associated with a reduced risk of MS developing as an adult.
