Eating Fish Twice a Week Curtails Arthritis Symptoms
People with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who eat fish at least twice a week have lower levels of disease activity than those who rarely or never eat fish, according to a study published in Arthritis Care & Research.
The study involved 176 people with rheumatoid arthritis. Study participants completed an eating-habits questionnaire for one year, and over the same period researchers tracked disease activity such as swollen and/or tender joints and other signs and symptoms.
Together, the data about the frequency of fish consumption and disease activity, suggested that eating fish can reduce inflammation in people with RA.
