A new study reports salt could be a possible trigger for inflammation in multiple sclerosis. Researchers report cells in a high salt environment show activation of the beta catenin/Wnt signaling pathway, a pathway previously implicated in disrupting regulatory T cells and triggering inflammation.
Researchers have identified a group of neurons that respond to sodium deficiency and drive the need to consume salt.
A new study reports high sodium intake could be a novel risk factor for MS.
Researchers find a fruit fly's salty taste sensation strategy could apply to other animals, even humans.
