Careful Diet, Weight Loss, Help Control An Unruly Immune System

August 17, 2009: 02:36 AM EST
Adjusting one’s diet to include, or avoid, certain foods might reduce the chances of damaging inflammation and the risk of diseases triggered by inflammation, scientists are finding. An anti-inflammatory diet would include vegetables, whole grains, nuts, oily fish, ginger, turmeric, and blueberries. At the same time, the diet would avoid certain inflammatory foods: saturated fats, trans fats, refined carbohydrates, sugars, etc. But in the end, some scientists suggest, the simplest way to quiet a haywire immune system is to eat healthy and keep the weight off. "If you lose weight, inflammation is dramatically improved," an obesity specialist says.
