The causes of most rheumatic diseases are still largely unknown and frequently involve several factors. Studies indicate that nutrition directly influences the course of joint rheumatism, especially rheumatoid arthritis. Changing eating habits can lessen the symptoms of this disease. The goal, above all, is to maintain a normal weight to avoid overloading the joints. Certain ingredients in our food promote the inflammatory process. One, for example, is arachidonic acid. Among substances that reduce the inflammatory process are the antioxidants vitamins C and E, and betacarotene; the minerals zinc and selenium; and the polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. Whereas vitamins bind and neutralize free radicals, omega-3 fatty acids prevent the formation of inflammation mediators. The authors lay out a nutritional program. Emphasizing that such a diet needn’t be monotonous, the book offers a wide variety in cuisine.

Research has shown that the brains of people with attention deficit disorder have several regions which are smaller than those brain regions of individuals without the disability. Additionally, there appears to be a various chemical levels and how the connections are made between nerves.
