MO: Relationship between cardiovascular health and inflammation.
Heart disease in all its many forms is NOT a disease of too much fat or cholesterol as the conventional wisdom would have us believe; it is a disease of inflammation. Inflammation is the body’s normal, healthy response to injuries of all kinds, from the microscopic to the traumatic. To reduce inflammation, one must reduce injury. And the microscopic injuries involved in most vascular disease can be minimized with a nutrient-dense, whole foods diet plus a reduction in the amount of exposure to environmental toxins. This will reduce the number of damaging agents in the blood stream.
