time to look at diet

I just came across an article on diet and arthritis in my latest Veg Times mag. It says there is probably more disagreement on the effects of diet on arthritis than there is on diet and any other condition. The believers, many of whom are doctors, even disagree with each other on which foods are good and which are not. Some types do tend to come up again and again in my reading, though. The nightshade family, including tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers, and eggplant...!! ...appear to cause or worsen inflammation. I LOVE these vegetables. Dairy products appear to have bad effects, as do high protein diets in general. I think I should try eliminating one class of foods, make some changes for several weeks, see what happens, see if I notice anything. That is, after I finish off the eggplant and tomatoes I have in the fridge. I think I have a bell pepper in there, too. Dang. Seems to be a lot of agreement on the omega-3s and the omega-6s, so I'll up the intake of olive oil and walnuts and so on. hmmm. Good thing I like trying new recipes.
