Sugar Beets and MS

Dr Raymond Sobel: investigating links between sugar beets and MS

Dr Raymond Sobel is a neuropathologist working at the VA Palo Alto Hospital in Calfornia, USA. He studies the tissues of the brain, spinal cord, muscle and nerve for diagnostic and research purposes.

Dr Sobel’s research focuses on the effects of a compound found in sugar beets called Azetidine-2-carboxylic acid (Aze). Sugar beets are used in meat and dairy products and their geographical use resembles that of MS incidence. If susceptibility to MS is due at least in part to exposure to a dietary component early in life, this will suggest ways to prevent and perhaps treat MS.
