Two Worst Contributors

Inflammation can involve the digestive system, which can compound the problems. How does digestive inflammation begin? Typically by what you eat. According to The Alternative Daily processed foods and refined sugars are the two worst contributors to chronic inflammation in the gastrointestinal system. Foods high on the glycemic Index such as processed and refined sugars and starches promote inflammation throughout the body, with its accompanying swelling, redness, and pain. Add to that many processed desserts t like muffins and cakes, which typically contain trans fats. Trans fats are can be quite damaging to the body, so can high-fructose corn syrup. Treatment often involves substances that suppress immune system function but does not involve avoiding the basic triggers, sort of like putting a Band-Aid on a severe cut. More tomorrow.
