15. Highly Processed Foods
Fast food, morning cereal, and baked goods are generally rich in refined carbohydrates, added sugar, preservatives, and other potentially inflammatory components, all of which may aggravate arthritic symptoms.
According to research, Western diets high in processed foods may raise the risk of RA by adding to inflammation and risk factors such as obesity.
Furthermore, in a study of 56 patients with RA, those who ate more ultra-processed food had greater risk factors for heart disease, including higher levels of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), a long-term measure of blood sugar management.
As a result, eating processed foods may harm your general health and raise your chance of developing additional ailments.
