Inflammation - buzz word of the year?
So in medical circles (and beyond), inflammation is being talked about a lot, and is believed to be a cause / contributing factor to many diseases (CVD, cancer, diabetes etc.)
Pple talk about CRP markers, and it seems to be desirable to have these as low as possible. A lot of diets aim to reduce inflammation in the body by emphasising anti-inflammatory foods.
But, I know one or two sick people who have no inflammation in their body. How is this possible? Maybe a bit of inflammation could be a good thing sometimes?
“I'm glad mushrooms are against the law, because I took them one time, and you know what happened to me? I laid in a field of green grass for four hours going, "My God! I love everything." Yeah, now if that isn't a hazard to our country..."

"Sometimes eating the wrong food with the right attitude is a better choice than eating the right food with the wrong attitude... That’s how powerful the mind and the heart can be in the healing process."
