Is inflammation inevitable?
From the research shared in Parts 1 and 2 of this article, the answer to the question, “Is inflammation inevitable?” seems to be “no,” at least in part. That is due to the fact that a diet low in processed food can decrease inflammation in your body.
In part one of this series I provided an overview of inflammation in the body. In this part, I’ll cover the research on various diseases apparently related to inflammation. In Part III, I’ll talk about the key to successful aging and what you can do to fight chronic inflammation.
We all know it as what happens when we cut a finger, get bit by a bug, or sprain an ankle. The area starts to swell up or turn red or both. Inflammation, defined as “a localized protective reaction of tissue to irritation, injury, or infection, characterized by pain, redness, swelling, and sometimes loss of function,” happens to everyone. What we don’t often think of happening to us, is the inflammation that happens inside our bodies.
