Researchers from the American Academy of Neurology (The American Academy of Neurology) argue that regular consumption of milk and vitamin D during pregnancy will help prevent the risk of multiple sclerosis in the unborn child.
For the experiment, the researchers invited 35,794 mothers. Participants in the study were asked to provide information about their diet and regular intake of milk and vitamin D during pregnancy. Some time later, scientists found that 199 children developed multiple sclerosis. The study showed that those children whose mothers regularly consumed milk and vitamin D during pregnancy were at the lowest risk of developing this disease.
The head of the research team, Dr. Fariba Mirzaei, says: “The risk of developing multiple sclerosis https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_sclerosis in children whose mothers drank 4 glasses of milk a day was 56% less than those whose mothers drank milk several times per month. We also found that regular vitamin D intake during pregnancy reduces the risk of multiple sclerosis in unborn children by 45%.”
