Eating brightly colored fruits and veggies could help lower the risk of ALS.
Harvard University researchers wanted to determine the role of diet in preventing ALS, which attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord.
They found people who ate more carotenoids, which give fruits and vegetables their bright colors, had a reduced risk of ALS.
While beta-carotene and lutein were strongly linked to a decreased ALS risk, researchers found diets high in lycopene and vitamin C did not affect a patient's risk of the disease.
