I'm a highschool student here doing a biology project about arthritis. My mom and grandma both have arthritis so I was very interested in learning more My research question is, Is arthritis more commonly genetic, or caused from environmental factors. If you're interested in helping please answer the following..


-Do you live in a rural or urban area?

-Smoking history?

-Have you had any autoimmune diseases?

-Was your birth weight above average?


Thanks SO so much in advance!(: Have a nice day!
