Wine could help sufferers of multiple sclerosis
A recent study, carried out by neurologists in Belgium, has found that wine could help to slow the development of multiple sclerosis (MS) in sufferers, according to an article published by the Wine Spectator.
The National Center for Multiple Sclerosis, in Belgium, found that those participants who suffered from the relapse form of MS and drank wine on a regular basis displayed much less severe symptoms.
Marie DHooghe, a neurologist at the centre and lead author of the study, stated that more research needed to be conducted to provide a clearer explanation.
She said: "Because we have no longitudinal data on changes of consumption over time, these associations could indicate either causality or reverse causality.
"In the latter case, this could mean that persons who have less progression of disability feel more comfortable to drink alcohol, including wine," she added.
The study is set to be published in the upcoming issue of the European Journal of Neurology.
