There are no known foods that cause RA. Some have suggested that night shade products such as tomatoes can increase symptoms. Others have found that certain foods trigger their symptoms and if that is the case, consider avoiding them. In my book Natural Arthritis Treatment I have a chapter on Diet and arthritis.
