Oily fish may help reduce risk of rheumatoid arthritis

New research presented June 13 at EULAR 2008, the Annual Congress of the European League Against Rheumatism in Paris, France, from the Institute of Environmental Medicine, Stockholm, Sweden suggests that dietary factors such as the intake of oily fish can reduce the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis whereas work stress and smoking will increase the risk.
