1 Marked improvement; discarding canes, walkers, wheelchairs; immobile joints now mobile or becoming mobile.
2 Volunteers were on the diet 6 months or more, some over 3 years.
3 Noticeable response, many still with problems.
4 Comments indicated not actually on the diet, as "can not resist tomatoes on occasion," or "these staples too difficult to avoid."
5 Apparently tried the diet, 40% rigidly, for several weeks to a year or more without improvement.  But 55% said they were still on the diet.
