But it seems when it comes to fat, everything bad is to be expected. In fact in this day and time fat can be considered a self destructive crime.
Research in the United States has found that a high-fat diet may increase the risk of children with multiple sclerosis (MS) experiencing a relapse, whereas a diet rich in vegetables could lower it.
But like we all know, vegetables and kids don’t get along that well.
The study results showed that for every 10 percent increase in calorie intake that came from fat, there was an associated 56 percent increased risk of a relapse.
With saturated fat considered the worse as it was found capable of tripling the risk of a relapse.
How Does Vegetables Affect The Situation?
The study findings showed that each additional cup of vegetables appeared to halve the risk of relapse.
The point to take home is that fat is bad and that once again the affirmative relationship between fat and multiple sclerosis is a pointer that too much fat can only bring too much health issues.
