 Answers to Bad and Good Food for Pain:
1.) Good
 Salmon is rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and these same compounds may also help reduce pain-promoting inflammation. That makes it a win-win for people with rheumatoid arthritis, who have greater risk of heart trouble than people without RA.
2.) Good
Olive oil works much the same way as omega-3s do—by potentially reducing painful joint inflammation, says Dr. Choi.
3.) Good
 This spice, used liberally in India and other parts of Asia to add taste and also a creamy yellow color to foods, may also have some anti-inflammatory properties, although those effects are likely to be "very, very mild," says Eric L. Matteson, MD, chair of rheumatology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
4.) Good and Bad
 People who are allergic to the protein casein found in milk will develop joint swelling if they drink milk, says Dr. Matteson. This is true even if they don’t have rheumatoid arthritis.
5.) Bad
The saturated fats in bacon and other animal products contain arachidonic acid, which may worsen inflammation and related pain and swelling.
6.) Good
Close your eyes. Onions contain tons of phytochemicals that may reduce inflammation.
7.) Good
 A clove of garlic may be able to fight off not only vampires, but arthritis as well.
8.) Good
 Not just any cherries but tart cherries are especially good for pain, it can affect the sensation of pain.
9.) Bad
For heart disease, the answer is pretty clear. Some red meats are high in saturated fat, which raises blood cholesterol. High levels of LDL cholesterol increase the risk of heart disease.
When it comes to cancer, the answer is not so clear. Many researchers say it does raise the risk, especially for colorectal cancer.
10.) Bad
Gluten is found in wheat, rye, and barley, and many grain products including breads, pasta, and cereal. Some medicines, vitamins, and lip balms may contain gluten too. You can choose legumes, nuts, quinoa, and rice instead. People with celiac disease, which is a severe gluten intolerance, can develop arthritis, so some people with rheumatoid arthritis steer clear of this ingredient.
