Dr. David Seaman, author of "The DeFlame Diet," was the first to identify the link between diet and inflammation in a landmark 2002 journal article entitled: "The diet-induced pro-inflammatory state." What medical disorders are caused by inflammation? What is "inflamm-aging"? How do foods drive inflammation in the body? Dr. Seaman highlights sugars, flour products, and vegetable oils as the main culprits. Contrary to popular belief, he contends, meats are not generally pro-inflammatory. What foods constitute "dietary crack"? Can certain foods like gluten and dairy stoke inflammation in susceptible individuals? What foods are anti-inflammatory? How do sleep, exercise, and stress affect our inflammation levels? Why does excess body fat perpetuate inflammation?
