An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Can Help You Live a Longer Life

Following a diet packed with foods that lower the markers of inflammation can lower risk for an early death. An anti-inflammatory diet isn’t just about what you eat, but what you don’t eat. Foods high in salt, saturated fat, sugar, and refined carbohydrates should be limited or avoided. . . . When these kinds of foods are consumed in excess they’re linked to higher markers for inflammation — which is tied to almost every kind of chronic disease — and presents a greater risk for cancer and diabetes. There is some research to support that eating recommended amounts of foods like fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and whole grains can reduce risk for chronic diseases that have an inflammatory component, such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and some types of cancer.
