2. Rheumatoid arthritis

The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not clear, but scientists suggest that it involves a combination of genetic and environmental factors which affect a person’s immune system.

Preventive measures:

  • Quit smoking and reduce consumption of coffee and red meat.
  • Take care of your teeth and gums thoroughly, visit a dentist on a regular basis. Periodontal disease can lead to the development of rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Include foods rich with vitamin C into your diet. This antioxidant reduces the risk of inflammation in your body.
