Researchers at the University of East Anglia are starting human trials following on from successful lab studies, with the view of proving that eating lots of broccoli slows down and prevents osteoarthritis, the BBC announced on the 28th of August. In its article, “Broccoli slows arthritis, researchers think,” the BBC explained that the researchers are asking 20 patients to eat a daily dose of "super-charged" broccoli, which has been bred to be extra rich in nutrients. Study leader Dr Rose Davidson told the BBC, ‘We're asking patients to eat 100g (3.5oz) every day for two weeks. That's a normal, good-sized serving – about a handful – and it's an amount that most people should be happy to eat every day.’ (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-23847632)

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine looked into how diet can impact arthritis risk. Yourwellness Magazine asserted, ‘Arthritis is a degenerative disorder. The best diet consists of meals that are going to help a sufferer’s body while battling to alleviate the pain. [Arthritis] leaves the joints and muscles feeling inflamed and uncomfortable. It is important to maintain nutritious diet with consistency. Your intake can make a difference in the way the body functions. The types of foods to avoid arthritis should be decided early in the diagnosis of the illness.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/01/how-your-diet-can-impact-your-arthritis-chances/#sthash.LavrHWJZ.dpuf)

Yourwellness Magazine noted that most doctors would say the best way to live life is healthily and responsibly, which means finding the right meal intake and have exercise plan. Yourwellness Magazine explained that the first issue is whether or not weight is a factor, as not taking care of this immediately can create more complications later on in life. Yourwellness Magazine advised a registered dietician to those who struggle with weight issues, as these professionals can alter eating habits by creating the best arthritis diet for each individual situation.
