Not true. They is not data supporting pasteurization causing flares in rheumatoid arthritis. There is one case in the Israeli literature of a milk allergy causing an inflammatory arthritis.

In brief: Depends
Some people with arthritis find that certain foods can cause their joints to flare.
The only way to see if a particular food is the culprit is to eliminate it from the diet. If the symptoms go away or get better, then you can re introduce the food to see if the symptoms return.
