I see all the new articles that they have found a new link to what causes MS: salt. Sadly super sizing the fries causes more than high blood pressure and cholesterol issues. 😉 I read the article, and I should get an award for not going to sleep, and still fail to fully see the issue. A T cell that helps regulate your sodium levels increases with heavier salt intake. Sounds like the body working normally and well, but in the “mouse model” it was bad. If they would have just said that a bad diet is bad for you I could go with that, but linking it to an essential chemical for the body has jumped the shark.

I have noticed two other correlations with Multiple Sclerosis: Breathing and Water Consumption. Both of these happened in 100% of people with MS. This should also be investigated for possible links to the disease.

  1. To add to this, is the fact that many people with MS are often diagnosed with dysautonomia, which is just an umbrella term for any malfunction of the autonomic nervous system. A common malfunction is deregulation of Blood pressure, pulse, heart rate, etc. POTS is a common condition in this, which includes decreased blood pressure when standing or moving from laying to sitting, etc. for those who fall into this category, not only is salt not bad for you but a high sodium diet is needed to keep blood pressure up to a healthy level. I think in addition to breathing and water consumption it is safe to assume that laying down, sitting and standing can add to these so-called “culprits”.
