Inflammatory Diseases and Diets

Inflammatory diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and Alzheimer’s effects are increased by consuming inflammation inducing foods. These chronic diseases also contribute to gingival inflammation and periodontitis and the tissue destruction associated with this condition. Foods that trigger inflammation are refined carbohydrates, refined sugar, saturated fat, trans fat, red and processed meats, and some alcoholic beverages. Better choices are foods rich in vitamins A, C, D, and E. This would be a diet heavy in fruits and vegetables.
