If you’ve been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, not a day passes when you don’t wish for a cure.

The swollen fingers, the stiffness in your knees… some days, the pain is just UNBEARABLE.

And forget Big Pharma’s “solutions” ...

On one hand you’ve got drugs that slow down your immune system and leave you RIPE for infection…

And on the other, you’ve got dangerous, addictive pain meds.

But now you don’t have to choose between mainstream drugs or suffering in silence.

Because an exciting new study reveals a SECRET cause of your rheumatoid arthritis—and it’s something that’s lurking in your fridge RIGHT NOW…

A MAP of pain

In a new study out of the University of Central Florida, researchers found that the true cause of rheumatoid arthritis could be hiding out in everything from your favorite hamburger to the half and half you put in your coffee!

Let me explain...

As it turns out, many people with rheumatoid arthritis have a mutated gene. That alone sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie… but it gets even weirder.

You see, some people live for YEARS with this mutated gene and never even get rheumatoid arthritis. That is, unless you get exposed to a terrifying bacteria called Mycobaterium avium paratuberculosis or MAP.

And when the two meet—BOOM!

Suddenly you’re suffering from painful joints, exhaustion, and—before you know it— rheumatoid arthritis.

But a new study has found a reason… and a cure.

Researchers tested 100 patients with rheumatoid arthritis for both the mutated gene and MAP.

The results? Roughly 78 percent of the patients had the mutated gene… and 40 percent of these folks tested positive for the bacteria.

In other words, 40 percent of rheumatoid arthritis sufferers had both the gene AND the bacteria. To me, those odds are just too strong to be a coincidence.

But don’t worry: there’s an easy fix… once you know how it happened in the first place.

No “moo’s” is good news

So just HOW do you get exposed to this bacteria?

Well, this is the strangest part of all...

It turns out, MAP is found in infected milk and beef.

And here’s where it gets even scarierMAP has been found in over HALF of the cows in the United States.

So whether you’re suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or you’ve been lucky enough to avoid it, it’s a good idea to stay away from beef and dairy. Period!

Usually I would recommend just going organic when it comes to red meat and dairy, but in this case it’s best to avoid them completely.

Luckily, there’s a way to do this while still eating delicious food—it’s called the Paleo Diet. You can still eat plenty of chicken and seafood, plus fresh veggies and nuts.

Even if you already suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, you can still benefit from the Paleo Diet. Eliminating inflammation-causing red meat and dairy will relieve most or even all of your symptoms.

Better yet, try a curcumin supplement. Curcumin is found in turmeric, a spice long used in Indian cooking to give dishes their bright golden color, and it’s been proven to reduce out-of-control inflammation and alleviate pain.

You can find a curcumin supplement at any health food store or online.
