Inflammation, Nutrition and Obesity – What are the Connections?

inflammation and obesity

by David Greenwalt Inflammation is a hot topic, and with good reason. In recent years, scientists have come a long way in elucidating the role that inflammation plays in our health and disease states. In a general sense, inflammation is the name given to the way that our bodies and immune systems react to potential trouble.
