Chronic Inflammation Linked to Obesity
A typical American diet, high in sugar and fat, causes changes to immune cells and increases chronic inflammation. Understanding this relationship is important in finding new ways to combat one of our biggest health issues. A new study suggests that anti-inflammatory medications can block the inflammatory effects of a diet high in fat and sugar—including obesity itself.
In light of mounting evidence, selecting a diet with anti-inflammatory properties looks like a good way to go for you and your family.
