Default RA is an autoimmune disease - 01-18-2013, 09:04 AM

Are you aware of the fact that RA or rheumatoid arthritis is one of the 80 different types of autoimmune disease. In RA the white blood cells overreact to stimuli inside the body. Instead of protecting the body from infection or disease, it attacks and destroys it's own healthy tissues. It is basically done by producing the antibodies which is called autoimmunity.
