Garlic May Halt the Progression of Hip Osteoarthritis
Williams et al. concluded that fruits and vegetables, particularly those from the allium family, provide a protective effect against hip osteoarthritis. This finding suggests that vegetables from the allium family could be used as an early disease intervention in order to prevent progression of hip osteoarthritis. The researchers also noted that this finding was not applicable to knee osteoarthritis or hand osteoarthritis because osteoarthritis at different sites of the body have different genetic and environmental factors.
