And Now for some news ….
Pain Sensitization and Disease Activity in Rheumatoid Arthritis
Pain sensitization may contribute to pain severity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), impacting assessment of disease activity.
The authors of a recent study published in the journal Arthritis Care and Research, examined whether pain processing mechanisms were associated with disease activity among RA patients with active disease.
The study concluded that high pain sensitization is associated with elevations in disease activity measures.
Longitudinal studies are underway to elucidate the cause-effect relationships between pain sensitization and inflammatory disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis.

Food groups and risk of all-cause mortality
Suboptimal diet is one of the most important factors in preventing early death and disability worldwide.
The aim of a recent meta-analysis, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, was to synthesize the knowledge about the relation between intake of 12 major food groups, including whole grains, refined grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, eggs, dairy, fish, red meat, processed meat, and sugar-sweetened beverages, with risk of all-cause mortality.
The results of the study found that with increasing intake (for each daily serving) of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and fish, the risk of all-cause mortality decreased;
Higher intake of red meat and processed meat was associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality in a linear dose-response meta-analysis.
A clear indication of nonlinearity was seen for the relations between vegetables, fruits, nuts, and dairy and all-cause mortality.
The study concluded that optimal consumption of risk-decreasing foods results in a 56% reduction of all-cause mortality, whereas consumption of risk-increasing foods is associated with a 2-fold increased risk of all-cause mortality.
As always, discuss all Nutritional Recommendations with your Qualified Health Care Provider.
