I ask one question if there is a lot of evidence for a low fat plant based diet been helpful for MS patients  why has a plant based  diet as a way of treating MS been almost totally ignored by MS Ireland, if the claims Conor makes for diet is only 10% true it would still be useful and I believe that he is 100% right then why is this simple treatment for MS not been actively promoted by MS Ireland ,if what he is saying is wrong why has MS Ireland not come out and challenge him on this either way this  we need to have the debate and raise awareness of how what you eat may affect your outcome if you have MS.


See my video about NNT on the same night that Conor gave his talk.
