Inflammation Nation by Floyd H. Chilton, Ph.D with Laura Tucker
This is another great educational book. The author takes an in depth look at the causes of the chronic inflammation epidemic in Western Societies. So many seemingly different diseases, when examined, all have the common denominator of chronic inflammatory responses in the body. Dr. Chilton takes a deep dive into dietary causes of inflammation (even listing over 250 foods in an inflammatory-foods index) and provides shocking evidence that some foods we have previously been taught were healthy are in fact highly inflammatory to the body! Believe me you will be surprised at this information! In this book he recommends a new Food Pyramid based on anti-inflammatory foods. His book is backed by twenty years of research and six clinical trials. It also includes meal plans that have been developed in collaboration with a world-class medical school. This is a must read or anyone suffering from a chronic inflammatory disease.
