Rheumatoid Arthritis Increases in Women, Declines in Men

Although I do not have rheumatoid arthritis myself, several of my friends do---and so this article from EMaxHealth.com piqued my interest. I found it interesting that the researchers theorize the lower doses of estrogen in more recently developed birth control pills might be a contribuiting factor in the increase in RA in women.

Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend---right now I am taking a break (after I finish this post) to hone my limited crochet skills to making a summer purse!
