Ask the Doctors: Choose a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods


Ask the Doctors: Choose a diet rich in anti-inflammatory foods
Chicago Sun-Times

Dear Reader: In our previous column, we addressed the first half of a two-part question about inflammation â what it is, and how it can be affected by diet. In answering the first half of the question, we discussed the two main types of inflammation and how they take place.To (briefly) recap: Inflammation is the body’s immune response to a perceived threat. Acute inflammation, a short-lived reaction to injury, trauma or infection, causes swelling, redness, and a sensation of heat and pain. Chronic inflammation, a low-level reaction, takes place below the threshold of pain. As a result, it tends to fly under the radar. But unlike acute inflammation, which abates when the threat has been neutralized, chronic inflammation continues. It has been linked to heart disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, obesity and Alzheimer’s disease.
