Six Inflammatory Foods that You Have to Avoid

  1. Milk (from cows)

This is the most inflammatory food as a result of the content of proteins and lactose. If you thought that skimming will help, unfortunately it won’t, it will make   the milk even more inflammatory.

  1. White Bread

This type of bread is high in refined carbohydrates, which almost instantly are altered into glucose in the body. It elevates the insulin levels thus making an ideal environment for inflammation.

However, according to the findings of a 2012 study released in the Journal of Nutrition suggests that the intake of whole grain bread substantially reduces the risk of inflammation.

  1. Vegetable Oil

Vegetable oils such as sunflower, corn, and soy have rich content of inflammation-causing omega-6 fatty acids. For that reason, try to avoid the usage of these oils, but instead use olive oil being high in beneficial omega-3 fatty acids.

  1. Alcohol

When you are consuming alcohol the body needs to work hard in order to break down alcohol and while this process is on, toxins are being created, which on the other hand damage the liver cells.

  1. Fried Foods

High temperatures are responsible for the formation of advanced glycation end products, these products are foreign to the body, and because of that it treats them as inflammation. The inflammation is the body response to a perceived infection.
