Foods to Avoid with Arthritis

Processed foods

4. Processed foods

Processed foods are everywhere. Basically, if you’re not eating a food at its natural/whole state, then it undergoes some sort of processed process. That being said, take this one with an “I’ll do my best” attitude. Because researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine examined disease prevention through diet, ​finding​ that decreasing the amount of processed foods eaten can “reduce inflammation and actually help restore the body’s natural defenses.”

So, cut back on the amount of canned, boxed and prepackaged foods, and add more fruits, veggies and nuts to your diet.
