The Viking Hypothesis the global distribution of certain northern-European genes which appear to be present in cases of MS

Information provided by Terence in Spain.

RESEARCHERS working on the island of Sicily recently discovered that Enna has an unexpectedly high and rising incidence of MS1. This, in the warm wine/oil-growing region of the Mediterranean where the incidence of MS is supposedly lower than in northern Europe. It was Dr. Roy L.

Dr. Roy Swank's eating regime for MS patients is commonly confused as it is above and this is an incorrect description.
The main rule is significantly limiting saturated fat consumption and further decreasing non-saturated fat in the diet. Nothing more and nothing less; wheat and dairy are not its focus.
Its important to know this difference because Dr. Swank's MS patients that have followed it faithfully are still ambulant 50 years later.
