We have been told that some ailments are hereditary, but I know that many of them are from the foods we eat and the things we do or don’t do. Arthritis has no age limit because young and older, people get it. Eating a lot of fried foods can cause inflammation, which is one of the signs of arthritis. You have to eat better and drink plenty of good water. Doctors will treat it with medicine or shots.

According to, the top foods that fight inflammation include:

Fruits such as tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries, apples, cherries, oranges, and pineapples are rich in antioxidants that help ward off inflammation.

Leafy Greens like spinach, kale, and collards.

Nuts like almonds and walnuts.

Fatty Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, and sardines.

Olive Oil is a healthy substitute for trans fats.

To fight inflammation with food, try the Mediterranean diet, which has been shown to reduce inflammatory markers throughout the body.
