The single best thing you can do for your health is to reduce inflammation.

By Paula Scarcella

Heart disease: Reducing inflammation, particularly in the
cells that line the blood vessels and heart, can reduce the
likelihood of having a heart attack or stroke. It can also
lower the chances of developing heart disease in the first
place.

Alzheimer’s disease: Many neurologists now believe
Alzheimer’s disease to be primarily an inflammatory process.
Those with less systemic inflammation have a lower risk of
developing Alzheimer’s disease. In those already afflicted, it
is hoped that the progression of the disease can be slowed
with anti-inflammatory therapies.

Cancer: This dreaded disease, which is threatening to
outpace heart disease as the number one killer of Americans,
is associated with a variety of inflammatory processes in the
blood and tissues. Anti-inflammatory therapies have been
shown to reduce the incidence of cancer and may prove to
be of value in the treatment of the disease as well.
