Tobacco & the Rheumatoid Factor

The journal Arthritis and Rheumatism puts in evidence that tobacco might cause a genetic reaction which conducts to serious forms of arthritis rheumatoid.

This type of arthritis can be quite painful and often greatly impedes one’s flexibility.

There is a lot of research being done to help ease the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, but one sure way is to stop smoking and begin a detoxification program now.

A case is built that tobacco increases the production of the so-called rheumatoid factor.

(RF) and decreases the levels of the GSTM1 gene.

This is important to note because body detoxification is your body’s immune response clearing out foreign substances from your body’s system.
