    • Smoking Triggers Rheumatoid Arthritis inWomenCigarette smoking is not only regarded as a badhabit but the cause of various health problems insome people. Smoking a few sticks of cigaretteseveryday may doublethe risk of gettingrheumatoid arthritis(RA), especially inwomen, according toa research. It doesnot guarantee thatquitting smoking saves you form RA because thedevelopment of RA is still potentially higher evenafter 15 years of stopping, health experts say. RA isconsidered as a type of arthritis, as well as anautoimmune disease, which stimulates pain andswelling of the joints. Unfortunately, no cure is still
    • available to prevent RA and anti-inflammatorydrugs, painkiller or steroid during the flare-up.It is crucial to quit the habit of smoking for manyhealth reasons, including the increased risk of RAfor smokers. Because there is clearly an increasedrisk of RA even after years of giving smoking up, it isimportant to quit smoking immediately andpersuade women not to start the habit at all.The study surveyed 34,101 women between ages54 and 89 about their smoking habits. Over half ofthe women said that they never smoked cigarettes.The remaining 46 percent of the women answeredquestions about when they started smoking, howmany cigarette sticks they consume per day andhow long since they have given up smoking.
    • RA is present to 219 women but 60 of them wereformer smokers and 80 are current smokers.Compared to women who never smoked and hadRA, both former and current smokers developed RAat a younger age. The link between smoking andrheumatoid arthritis development is still notevident.A hip replacement is for the people with chronic hipjoint problem triggered by osteoarthritis orrheumatoid arthritis. Hip replacement is a surgeryin which the hip joint is replaced by a prostheticimplant. The brand Stryker is one of the mostpopular hip replacement devices. Specifically,experts say, tiny fragments of metal shear off fromthese artificial joints, causing chronic pain orinfection and raising levels of metal in thebloodstream. The Stryker Hip Recall may be helpfulto individuals seeking information about hipreplacements.
