An evaluation undertaken to assess the impact of diet patterns on the development of hip arthritis found fruits and vegetables were generally protective with the allium group of veggies showing the most effectiveness.
The study included a careful assessment of the dietary habits of over 1,000 subjects along with x-ray analysis of their joints. The allium family of veggies includes: garlic, onions, scallions, leeks and shallots. I include this flavorful bunch in my diet daily and enjoy every bite. (BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders,20010;11). They are also scientific standouts for cancer protection.
