Listen To Your Grandmother

There’s one final player in our drama of who’s to blame for the epidemic of silent inflammation – us and our failure to listen to our grandmothers’ advice on fish oil.

Standard issue to almost every child 2 generations ago was a daily dose of a tablespoon of cod liver oil.

Although it still ranks as one of the most disgusting foods of all time, this dosage provided about 2.5 grams of EPA and DHA, which has significant anti-inflammatory properties.

The day parents in America stopped giving their children high-dose fish oil may have been the greatest public health disaster of the 20th century.

Our epidemic of silent inflammation is the result.

The Exporting of Silent Inflammation

Many trends start in the US and then cover the globe.

Our epidemic of silent inflammation is one more of them.

We exported Big Macs and Coca-Cola, and now the USDA Food Pyramid.

Virtually every government in the world has adopted it as the standard on which their national dietary recommendations are based.

Not surprisingly, obesity has become a worldwide problem, with more people overweight today than malnourished.

The same trends currently at work in America (time compression due to technology, the availability of cheap food ingredients, and the desire for things that taste good) have come together to export our epidemic of silent inflammation to Europe and the middle classes of the Far East, Latin America, and India.

In fact, Italian children are now the fattest in Europe, whereas only a few short years ago, they were among the leanest.

With this increase in body weight comes a corresponding increase in silent inflammation and rapid development of chronic disease like type 2 diabetes.

In fact, today there are more type 2 diabetics in either India or China than there are in the United States.

If the epidemic of type 2 diabetes threatens to destroy the US health care system because of its cost, what will be the impact of the disease on the Chinese and Indian health care systems?

Are we pessimistic?

Not really.

You can’t solve a problem unless you know what actually causes it.

Pointing the finger of guilt at the government, agribusiness, fast-food restaurants, or the processed food manufacturing industry is easy to do, but misses the mark.

The real problem is our lack of knowledge of how to take control of our hormones.

Ultimately, you have to decide to change your future by controlling your hormones to get into the Anti-Inflammatory Zone.

But this requires understanding the hormonal consequences of your food choices.
