What Should Women Add To Their Diets To Help Prevent Hip Osteoarthritis?

Researchers at King’s College London and the University of East Anglia have studied over 1,000 healthy female twins.

Osteoarthritis affects around 8 million people in the UK and is more common in women than in men. Currently pain relief and joint replacement are the only treatments.
