Studies have shown that many major diseases—like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer's—have been linked to chronic inflammation. Harvard health experts suggest that one of the best ways to fight inflammation is not in the medicine cabinet, but in the refrigerator.
Next time you go to the grocery store, pick up foods that fight inflammation, like:
- Olive oil
- Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach, kale, and collards
- Nuts like almonds and walnuts
- Fatty fish like salmon, tuna, and sardines
- Fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, cherries, and oranges
