High-fibre diet an effective way to tackle inflammation caus
Researchers have found that consuming a high-fibre diet may significantly induce the action of gut bacteria to help reduce inflammation associated with gout and possibly help the treatment of arthritis.

Gout is a metabolic disease in which monosodium urate crystals of uric acid -- a waste product in the blood -- form in the body’s tissues or joints, causing inflammation and pain. The study found that the action of gut bacteria, influenced by different types of food, can affect inflammation in the body.

Diet that are high in fibre trigger bacteria in the gut to produce short chain fatty acids (SCFAs), which induces neutrophil apoptosis and the resolution of inflammation....
