    As a person with MS who has eaten a low fat, low salt, low added sugar, vegetarian, 95% planted based diet I find this study ridiculous and condescending. It hints that one is responsible for developing this disease. Blaming the victim mentality. Granted I am no fan of processed foods and agree with Mr. Gartner that the FDA should be regulating it more.  But I have avoided processed foods as much as possible my whole life and it didn't help me from getting this disease.  

    It seems to be the popular trend for "scientists" to do studies on diets and then concluded that every disease is a result of what people eat. I feel that a reputable scientist should dig a little deeper into the more complex concepts instead of going  for these simple, trendy ideas.
