Low-level, chronic inflammation lies so far below the skin’s surface that you can’t see it or feel it.
It’s the result of an immune system in overdrive, damaging healthy tissue and leading to chronic illnesses. Continuing inflammation can trigger heart disease, cancer and diabetes, but it also can exacerbate asthma, acne and obesity – even ruin your mood, says Evelyn Tribole, a registered dietitian in Newport Beach, Calif., and author of (McGraw-Hill).
Within two decades, more than one-third of Americans will have an inflammatory disorder, Tribole says. And most of it stems from an unhealthy diet.
Fight Fire with Food
The typical Western diet – high in processed foods, refined starches, added sugars and animal fats and low in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and omega-3 fatty acids – fuels inflammation, according to the American College of Cardiology.
But people in Greece, Italy and France have better eating habits and less chronic disease. In those Mediterranean countries, sweets, eggs and beef don’t star on the plate as often as in the U.S.
Their diet is naturally anti-inflammatory and includes low-fat and nonfat dairy foods, olive oil, potatoes, nuts, poultry, legumes, olives and wine, says Demosthenes Panagiotakos, a leading researcher on the Mediterranean diet and associate professor of Biostatistics & Epidemiology of Nutrition at Harokopio University of Athens, Greece.
