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 think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
