Scientists at Yale University have found excessive consumption of the product that everyone uses in everyday life increases the risk of multiple sclerosis. According to the researchers, increased consumption of this spice contributes to the development of multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease of the central nervous system, in which the primary injury structure is the protective sheath of nerve fibers (myelin). This is why the injured nerves can not tolerate nerve impulses from the brain or brain.
The current study found how salt can lead to the development of autoimmune disease.
The researchers found that cells in a more saline environment showed activation of the beta-catanine / Wnt signaling pathway. It is associated with the development of cancer, regulatory T-cell dysfunction and the induction of inflammation in the body that affect the nervous system.
In addition to salt, vitamin D deficiency, smoking and obesity are associated with the development of multiple sclerosis. The risk of developing MS is increased by the interaction between genetic inheritance and environmental factors.
The full results of scientific research are published in Nature Immunology.
