9/11 First Responders Plagued by Rheumatoid Arthritis

First, I want to say that I am thinking of the victims of 9/11 and their loved ones. This includes the first responders. Our nation was changed forever on that fateful day, and I will never forget where I was when I heard the devastating, and terrifying, news. I cannot believe that it’s been 15 years already.


I would like to share with you an interesting story that I did for Healthline in 2015. It is about 9/11 first-responders being plagued by rheumatoid arthritis and similar autoimmune conditions, giving credence to the notion that RA and PTSD are linked, and also that RA may have environmental components.

Please take a moment to read it if you’d like!

Thank you to all first responders, and God Bless America. We will never forget.
