CHRONIC INFLAMMATION: "THE ROOT CAUSE!"
According to the popular health expert, Dr. Andrew Weil (MD), who was interviewed on the Dr. Oz show in October 2012, "Chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses - including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer's disease."
Dr. Weil notes that inflammation has a beneficial role in the body as a healing response to bring nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. Yet, he says, "when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. " He observes that there are a number of factors that contribute to inflammation, including "stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke)," and "dietary choices" which he says also plays a big role.
The answer to better health, he states, lies in "learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process" so that one may follow "the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term risks." (Link to Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Diet)
Dr. Weil says you can adapt your diet according to anti-inflammatory diet principles. He has provided an "Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid" that "provides a blueprint for a lifetime of optimum nutrition." He declares: "Simple changes in how you eat can help counteract chronic inflammation, a root cause of many serious diseases, including:
- Heart Disease
- Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases
- Age-related disorders, including many cancers
- Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus." (Link to Dr. Weil)
