Over time, the stress of repeated use on human skeletal joints causes a condition, responsible for inflammation, soreness, redness and pain. This condition, sometimes exacerbated by genetic weakness or weight, is known as arthritis. While arthritis symptoms can be curbed, there is no specific cure, or dietary choice that can eliminate it. That said, the more than 50 million people experiencing decreased mobility and discomfort, due to arthritis, should know some foods are best avoided, including dairy, saturated fat, sugar from processed foods, salt, gluten and red meat. Many of these items exacerbate arthritic inflammation.
