Arpita Basu (Kinesiology and Nutrition Sciences) co-authored “Strawberries Improve Pain and Inflammation in Obese Adults with Radiographic Evidence of Knee Osteoarthritis,” which appeared in the August issue of Nutrients, an open access journal of human nutrition. Knee osteoarthritis is a chronic condition that causes pain, disability, and reduced quality of life among the aging and obese populations. This is the first clinical study to show the benefits of an antioxidant-rich dietary strawberry supplement, and furthers evidence that specific dietary fruits complement nutrition therapy among arthritis sufferers.
