Adults whose parents have a history of substance abuse may be at an increased risk for developing arthritis, according to the results of a study published on March 23, 2014, in the International Journal of Population Research. Respondents of the 2005 Canadian Community Health Survey who reported that at least 1 of their parents had been addicted to drugs or alcohol were ~58% more likely to be diagnosed with arthritis than those who did not report parental addictions.
