2. Seed Oils
Oils, such as cottonseed, soybean, corn, safflower and sunflower, are unhealthy for your joints as they pack up excessive amounts of omega-6 fatty acids. Now, while you may have read volumes of information on the potently powerful and beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, not many people are aware of the effects of omega-6 fatty acids.
Our daily diets are loaded with omega-6 fatty acids while being deficit in omega-3s, because most processed and packaged food products that we so lovingly stock up from supermarkets are mostly prepared in soybean oil.
Research reveals that the excessive consumption of omega-6 fatty acids increases the risk factors contributing to arthritis, inflammation, asthma and cardiovascular ailments.
A study revealed that patients suffering with rheumatoid arthritis must reduce their consumption of omega-6 fatty acids, which can also be devoured through meat, fried dishes, egg yolks and margarine, as it aids in reducing the symptoms of inflammation.
