The modern times, bring many changes and also in the frequency in the illnesses, and today Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer –which are all chronic inflammation, are considered to be the most lethal diseases.
This is not very strange if we take in consideration all the type of food that we eat today containing many inflammatory ingredients.
Here are the 6 most used foods that have inflammatory ingredients and you must stop consuming them:
- White bread
White bread contains a lot of refined carbohydrates, and when they get inside the body they are dissolved to glucose. This is the reason for the higher levels of insulin and it results in chronic inflammation.
The Journal of Nutrition published one study in 2012, which showed that the inflammation is reduced by consumption of whole grain bread.
- Cow’s milk
Cow’s milk is abundant in lactose and proteins and due to this it is considered to be on the highest places of inflammatory foods. Even if the milk is skimmed it is not better, it is actually made more inflammatory.
- Fried Foods
Advanced glycation is formed in high temperatures. This is not known by the body and the body reacts to it like an inflammation. And this causes inflammation as the body’s response to the infection.
- Vegetable Oil
Omega -6 fatty acids which are contained in vegetable oil – sunflower, soy and corn; are very inflammatory foods. So replace these oils with the olive oil, which contains only omega-3 fatty acids.
Alcohol is very damaging to the liver, due to all the toxins that are created in the process of breaking down alcohol.
- The three ‘Ps’
Michelle Schoffro invented the term the three “Ps” – for prepared, packaged and processed foods. They contain extremely inflammatory ingredient and you should not consume them such as processed cheese, cereals, candy and soda.
