IN­FLAM­MA­TION THE SILENT KILLER

Natural Solutions - - Food Matters - BY JONNY BOWDEN, PHD, CNS

While we’ve all been busy fo­cus­ing on avoid­ing choles­terol and fat, we’ve ig­nored what is turn­ing out to be one of the most im­por­tant health con­cerns of our time: in­flam­ma­tion.

Chances are you’ve never paid much at­ten­tion to in­flam­ma­tion—but you should. It’s linked to dis­eases as di­verse as cancer, Alzheimer’s, obe­sity, con­ges­tive heart fail­ure, and di­a­betes. “Silent in­flam­ma­tion” is lit­er­ally a stealth bomber, re­duc­ing your odds of liv­ing a long and dis­ease-free life just as ef­fec­tively—and as si­lently—as breath­ing an in­vis­i­ble, odor­less poi­son gas.
