Vegemite reduces pain, inflammation in RA

Topical application of the popular spread Vegemite significantly reduces disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis, Melbourne researchers report.

Their study randomised 370 patients with active RA to either Vegemite, Vegemite and butter, or a placebo sandwich condiment spread evenly across the rheumatoid joints every day for eight weeks. Disease activity was assessed in all patients at baseline, at the end of the intervention, and at six months.
