Want to reduce the painful effects of rheumatoid arthritis?

Want to reduce the painful effects of rheumatoid arthritis, including tender and swollen joints? Eat more fish. New research involving 176 individuals suffering from the condition shows that those who ate fish twice a week tended to have less severe symptoms than others who only consumed fish infrequently (less than once a month or never). Dr. Sara Tedeschi, the lead author of the study, which was published in Arthritis Care & Research, suggests that “fish consumption may lower inflammation related to rheumatoid arthritis disease activity”.
