A new study shows that the consumption of fish may actually help reduce joint pain and swelling that people experience from rheumatoid arthritis. In the study 176 people were studied who had physical exams, blood tests and filled out food consumption surveys which indicated whether or not these people were consuming different types of non-fried fish. The study broke people down into groups which categorized whether people ate fish less than once a month, once a month, once or twice a week, and more than two times a week. After studying many other factors according to race, gender, and other habits, the research found that those who ate fish regularly or increased their fish consumption, their rheumatoid arthritis symptoms decreased dramatically.

So, if you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, it may be extremely beneficial to start adding more non-fried fish into your diet. To learn more about the study, check out anding/index.aspx
