15 Foods that Cause Gout

Red Meat

If you are a fan of red meat and almost all your meals, contain red meats, believe me, that you are on the higher risk of having a gout attack. This medical condition does not just come; it happens with a gradual accumulation of uric acid in the body. Red meats are very rich in purine which is a chemical compound that turns into uric acid when broken down. Uric acid is not necessarily bad for the body, and it is eliminated when passed through the kidney. The formation of excess uric acid as crystals in the body causes gout to advance. [3]
