YorkTest Laboratories recently completed a research study concluding that autoimmune disorders can, including certain arthritis, be affected by food such as milk, eggs, wheat and rice. Some forms of arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis are autoimmune disorders, as are certain skin conditions such as psoriasis. YorkTest reports a “clear” difference in food intolerance profiles with suffers displaying a much greater reaction to particular foods.
