Extinguish the Fire of Inflammation with these Healthy Foods
Inflammation comes in two forms: acute and chronic.

You might be all too familiar with the acute kind; it's what you see when you stub your toe or get a splinter.

But, the chronic kind is a whole different story.

Chronic inflammation is often called a "silent killer." It damages the vascular walls and is a factor in every single degenerative disease, including heart disease, Alzheimer's, diabetes, cancer, and obesity. It's also a big factor in less "life-threatening" diseases like asthma, acne, migraines and arthritis.

Chronic inflammation flies beneath the radar. It doesn't manifest any symptoms, but it kills you by injuring the vascular system in a subtle but consistent way. It disrupts the flow of blood. It damages the walls of the arteries. And, it's a factor in every disease known to man.

Reducing inflammation is one of the most important health strategies for longevity and good health.

What are ways to ease inflammation?
