You might say that it takes fat to burn fat. In reality, it is the reduction of inflammation in the fat cells that decreases insulin resistance that allows the body to better access stored fat for energy.
I believe the real molecular reason that low-dose aspirin has these effects is that it increases the production of resolvins that are the most powerfully known hormones to cause the resolution of inflammation. It is inflammation that feeds tumor growth.
No Green Line service alerts to report. Nice! Ongoing – Minor Downtown Crossing: The Franklin St entrance will remain closed until Summer 2016 to accommodate ongoing construction for the Millennium Tower Project. Ongoing – Minor Braintree Station Garage: Ivory Street entrance will have one operational entrance gate beginning May 3.
Finally, a decent report on palmitate-induced inflammation.
Too bad Fox News doesn’t interview real cardiovascular researchers who know it is inflammation that causes heart disease, not cholesterol.
Insulin resistance is caused by inflammation. Therefore the linkage to an inflammatory disease like Alzheimer’s should not be too surprising.
Rarely do you hear inflammation mentioned so many times in the same article about three different chronic diseases. I guess this means that an anti-inflammatory diet is probably a good thing to follow.
It’s nice to see that inflammation is being mentioned to a greater extent as an underlying cause of depression. Rather than screening for heart disease, I would recommend giving more omega-3 fatty acids to treat both the depression and cardiovascular risk factors simultaneously.
Auto-immune diseases occur when there is a constantly activated inflammatory response that ends up attacking normal tissue. The obvious answer is turning down an overactive immune system and reducing the levels of inflammatory cytokines. The most powerful dietary technology remains high-dose fish oil, but you have to use a therapeutic dose that will be greater than 7.5 grams of EPA and DHA per day.
Harvard Medical School demonstrated more than 25 years ago in the New England Journal of Medicine that high-dose fish oil is an excellent treatment for reducing the levels of tumor necrosis factor.
I have said it many times, these genetically engineered vegetable seeds are also rich in gamma linolenic acid (GLA). At the proposed consumption levels to get adequate EPA and DHA, one will also get excessive levels of GLA, and that is likely to translate into increased AA. There will be a lot of inflammatory damage and major lawsuits as a consequence.
