Inflammation is a natural bodily response [7] to stress, infection, or injury. However, prolonged inflammation [8] caused by a self-destructive lifestyle is a harmful response that affects your musculoskeletal system, gastrointestinal function, cardiovascular system, vision, and hormone balance. It’s crucial to control inflammation (there are medications [9], of course) but it’s even smarter to prevent inflammation. You can do this through daily exercise, stress management, and avoidance of smoking and drinking. But there are many foods that help control inflammation, too. (Chicken nuggets – or rings [10] – do not.) These foods are known as vegetables. Yes – vegetables can help your inflammation just like drugs can. But don’t tell anyone.

Garlic

Broccoli

Spinach

Kale

Bok choy

Cauliflower

Cabbage

Onions

Peppers

Aim to eat one of these vegetables daily!
