Anti-inflammatory Diet May Aid Patients With Chronic Diseases

A diet aimed at combatting inflammation in the body — combined with weight loss, smoking cessation and regular physical exercise — may assist patients in recovering from or avoiding the most common chronic illnesses, various government agencies and medical researchers say.

Laboratory, clinical and epidemiologic studies are finding that clinical nutrition may be able to battle and reverse the harmful effects of the inflammatory processes underlying such enduring, slow-progression diseases as Alzheimer’s disease, anger disorders and aggressive behavior, arthritis, asthma, atherosclerosis, bone disease, cancer, Crohn’s disease, depression, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), lung disease, metabolic syndrome, neurological diseases, obesity, Parkinson’s disease and respiratory diseases.

The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that these severe illnesses — caused and accelerated by environmental pollution, genetic predisposition, sleep health issues, “industrialization, economic development, urbanization and market globalization” — are responsible for 63 percent of all deaths globally and 70 percent of those or 1.7 million per year in the United States.
