A healthy nutrition must limit or avoid food that can cause inflammation in the body


A study on dietary habits, which followed nearly 166,000 women and 44,000 men for 24 to 30 years found and demonstrated something previously sometimes anticipated. The lead author Dr. Jun Li said the study was different and special because it did not examine the impact of specific food groups, but instead focused on the impact of a combination of 18 food groups in inflammation in the human body. “Foods that are associated with higher inflammation include red meat, organ meat, processed meat, refined grains, sugary beverages and low-energy (diet) carbonated beverages,” said Li, from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. This is not good for health and particularly associated with cardiovascular and stroke risk. The opposable alternative means “foods that are associated with lower inflammation include leafy green vegetables, dark yellow vegetables, fruit, whole grain, tea, coffee and wine.”


Knowledge can be linked to prevention in some others health threats in which chronic inflammation plays a relevant role, such as diabetes, cancer, depression, cognitive decline, and Alzheimer’s disease,” wrote Dr. Ramon Estruch, an associate professor at Barcelona University’s department of medicine. To be known, today’s Western diet is full of overly processed, fat-laden foods, sugary drinks and red and processed meats that can cause persistently high levels inflammation in the body. To be limited: ice cream, cookies, pastries, cereal bars and cakes, premade pies, pasta and pizza dishes. processed meats such as bacon, sausages and hot dogs, sugary sodas and fruit-flavored drinks.
