Rheumatoid Arthritis affects about one in every 50 Americans. The joints are tender, swollen and painful in motion.  The inflammation form rheumatoid Arthritis can spill over to other organs such as the heart and blood vessels causing damage throughout the body.  Resent research has found that sometimes rheumatoid arthritis can be related to food intolerance.  What they found is that people with rheumatoid arthritis might significantly decrease pain and reduce risk of additional joint damage by eliminating animal protein from their diets.  This would include eggs, dairy, meat, fish, poultry, etc.  Protein can be derived from legumes, nuts, even quinoa.  Remember if you are suffering and try this, give it enough time to tell a difference!
