Fat Good for Inflammation - Jim Carey
I love the way conventional medicine and research gloms on to information that alternative health people have known for years. When they 'discover' it, they claim it as 'new' information. BALONEY. 'Experts' at Edinburgh University say they think they are on to something. Eating good fats may actually reduce allergic symptoms. Duh.
Alternative health practitioners have known for years that fats, especially the good ones, reduce cellular inflammation. Which in turn reduces the allergic reaction. No pills. No drugs. No injections. Just simple fat.
And just to show you that they really don't know what they are talking about... they suggest that the fat may also compromise the body's Immune System. What they don't know yet is that it actually compliments the Immune System!
As I have said many times before: they see the dots, but never connect them. And again, they prove my point.
