What is the Daily Recommendation for Fruits and Vegetables for People with Multiple Sclerosis?

 

Q. I have Multiple Sclerosis.What diet of fruits and salads should I have?
 
A. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, there is no special diet, per se, for people with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and they should follow the same low-fat, high-fiber diet recommendations as the general population. The daily recommendation for fruit and vegetable intake is around 4 to 6 cups per day and is based on sex, age, and physical activity level.
