Diet for Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Research has shown that eating fruits and vegetables may be linked to a lower risk of rheumatoid arthritis.
Fruits and vegetables are high in nutrients - both vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E and selenium. They are also high in bioflavonoids which have anti-inflammatory actions. 
Researchers have shown that a high intake of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of some degenerative diseases including arthritis and cause improvement in rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.
In some Mediterranean countries, such as Greece,where the diet is large amounts of fruits, vegetables, olive oil, and fish, this Mediterranean-type diet seems to protect against rheumatoid arthritis.
