The link between diet and MS is unclear, and available information is contradictory, confusing, and not always based on evidence. This research program will provide new knowledge on diet and MS progression, along with dietary education tailored for MS. People with MS will then be able to make informed decisions about their diet, including food choices and supplement use, to gain better health and wellness outcomes.

The impact of this research could be substantial, since making dietary changes is a modifiable lifestyle factor and something people with MS can easily implement in their daily lives.
