Musing from the owner of Grow and Make: Will Johnston
I have a history of heart disease from my mother’s side of the family. I worry that I might be at risk because of this. My research on this topic indicates that recently there is an emphasis on reducing inflammation in the body, to lower the risk of heart disease. This sounds intuitively correct and the science does back this up. So, what can one do to lower inflammation? Well, eating whole foods is a good place to start. Second, there are supplements which can also help with this.I take fish oil and turmeric to help with this, but there are others. Of course, body weight and exercise are also key to reducing inflammation, so one shouldn’t hope diet and supplements alone will work.
