Is Inflammation Hurting Your Health?
Inflammation gets a pretty bad rap — and for a laundry list of reasons. Some doctors very firmly connect it to heart disease — like Dwight Lundell, MD, whose essay, Making the Connection, has been shared on Facebook more than 432,000 times. Danish researchers found that inflammation could be to blame for depression and mood disorders, while other research has linked it to cancer. Some would even go as far as to say that inflammation is the root cause of all disease. So what is inflammation is, what causes it, and how you can prevent it? Hint: What’s at the end of your fork — and on your exercise agenda — matters.
