Several recent studies have made the connection between good diet (olive oil rather than butter) and RA incidence as well as severity and progression of the debilitating disease. The benefits of a good diet contrast with the current medical treatment prognosis for RA which actually weakens the immune system overall, opening the body up to any of a number of potential risk factors which eating right will strengthen the body's ability to resist.
RA is a life threatening disease which kills about 40,000 Americans annually and has a three to one preference to affect the female gender.
