Inflammation is part of the body’s immune response to fight infection or heal damaged tissue. However, chronic inflammation – when the body’s inflammatory response does not end when it should or starts without need – can cause various chronic illnesses including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, Alzheimer’s disease, and autoimmune conditions. An anti-inflammatory diet can help reduce inflammation and, therefore, potentially prevent these illnesses from occurring or worsening.
