THE EFFECT OF DIET ON ARTHRITIS is among the most debated topics with regard to the management or prevention of the disease. The reason for the debate comes from the fact that you will find many more testimonials than scientific conclusions about diet and arthritis. Regimens for eliminating foods thought to worsen arthritis symptoms exist. There are books and Web sites devoted to the subject. With certainty, it can be said that there is no single diet that controls arthritis symptoms for every patient.
