Preventing arthritis: Would you if you could?


Asking a question about whether or not someone would prevent arthritis if they could might seem rhetorical. After all, arthritis is painful and life-altering. It affects more than 5.6 million Canadians. But the decision to try to prevent arthritis when you are healthy can be a difficult one. It involves assessing the risks of different treatments, considering what you feel is important and much more. Dr. Mark Harrison highlights the latest research in arthritis prevention and reveals why some decide to take the path to prevention before symptoms appear.
