Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An internationally renowned scientist sounds the alarm about our country's most critical health issue and provides a simple eating plan that can help stop this secret epidemic one individual at a time.

Here are the chilling statistics:

·One in three American adults suffers from arthritis.

·Sixty-four million people have heart disease in some form.

·Fifty million Americans suffer with allergies and 20 million have asthma.

·More than 18 million people have diabetes, with 1.3 million newly diagnosed each year.

·Sixty-five percent of American adults are over-weight or obese and 16 percent of children are overweight.

At best, these conditions destroy our quality of life; at worst, they are painful, debilitating, and fatal.

What can possibly account for the sharp increase in these diseases over the last few generations? Is there a connection between these afflictions? Is there anything you can do to protect yourself?

As this groundbreaking book makes clear, the root cause of diseases as disparate as heart disease, eczema, and asthma is unbridled inflammation. And the major culprit is right in front of us — on our plates.

Every day we make food choices — some of which are perceived as "healthy" — that introduce poisonous levels of certain fatty acids to our bodies. These fatty acids (found in myriad foods, from farm-raised salmon and eggs to roasted turkey) help to inflame our immune systems.

Backed by twenty years of research, and by an unprecedented six clinical trials, Dr. Chilton presents two anti-inflammatory dietary programs: One is designed to provide a solution for those of us who currently suffer from an inflammatory disease, and the other is designed to prevent the rest of us from getting one. Complete with a new food pyramid and eight weeks of easy-to-follow meal plans developed in collaboration with a world-class medical school, the book also includes charts detailing which types of fish are the best inflammation fighters, which carbs you should enjoy or avoid, and the patented Inflammation Index, which gives you the inflammatory potential of more than 250 foods.

If you're already suffering from one of these diseases and follow the Chilton Program, you will see improvement in your health in as few as seven days. If you think you've dodged this bullet altogether, this book will make it very clear that no one is safe, and it will convince you to completely change the way you eat from this moment forward.

Review:

"What do arthritis, heart disease, allergies and asthma have in common? According to the authors, the underlying cause of each of these conditions is inflammation, which occurs when the body's 'own immune system turns against itself.' As Chilton, a professor of physiology and pharmacology, and writer Tucker explain, inflammation occurs when we consume 'foods of affluence,' e.g., farmed salmon and eggs, and out-of-season fruits and vegetables — foods that have replaced the seasonal nuts, fruits and vegetables enjoyed by our hunter-gather ancestors. In a sometimes alarmist tone, the authors warn readers of the dangers found in today's foods, which contain dangerous levels of an omega-6 fatty acid called arachidonic acid (AA). Chilton's dietary solution is designed to restore the body's fatty acid balance. Those who follow the Chilton Program will avoid foods that are high in AA and increase their consumption of fatty acids that inhibit inflammation. It's not clear that assigning an inflammatory index to a food is useful to health. Moreover, the world of fatty acids is a complex one, and even interested readers will find the theory behind the diet isn't as coherent as, say, many of today's more straightforward diets; the food index and recipes at the end of the book are easy enough to use, however."

Synopsis:

Dr. Chilton presents scientific proof that a natural, diet-based solution can both treat and prevent inflammatory diseases, and offers offers a program that can be easily followed--one that promises discernible improvement in as little as seven to ten days.

Synopsis:

Over 70 million Americans are diagnosed with an inflammatory disease, including Asthma, Allergies, Arthritis, Heart Disease, and Diabetes. Current sufferers spend over 10 billion dollars a year on drugs to treat these illnesses, but for the first time ever there is a scientific proof that a natural, diet-based solution can both treat and prevent these diseases from ever taking hold. In Inflammation Nation, Dr. Floyd Chilton presents the first unifying concept to explain this dangerous trend and, finally, offers a program that every one of us can easily follow — one that promises discernable improvement in as little as seven to ten days.
