We hear constantly in th media that it's unhealthy to be overweight. But, really, why? Neither the medical profession, the media, nor the general public understand the major force behind the development of heart disease, cancer and dementia. The underlying factor that connects these (and many other) conditions is years of silent inflammatory insult to the heart, the immune system, and the brain. And a primary cause of this silent inflammation is obesity.
'The Anti Inflammation Diet' takes the current obsession over weight loss out of the hands of diet gurus and into a national medical examination of the future of health in this country. If excess body fat accelerates the inflammatory response, and this inflammatory response is a major cause of most dreaded diseases, what is the solution? The Zone dietary plan. This long-term strategy works to control the hormones that in turn control inflammation.
