Part 3 - Arthritis & Inflammation - More Anti-Inflammatory Foods
Arthritis is the general term for the various conditions that have joint pain & inflammation as symptoms. Arthritis can occur at any age, however the risk of developing most types of arthritis increases the older one gets. While there is no definitive anti-inflammation diet for arthritis yet, studies have indicated that there are several food groups & ingredients that should be avoided due to their inflammatory properties.
