Some research suggests dairy products are good for rheumatoid arthritis while others seem to indicate that they’re bad.
People who are allergic to the protein casein found in milk will develop joint swelling if they drink milk, says Dr. Matteson. This is true even if they don’t have rheumatoid arthritis.
