“Inflammation is a major player in most chronic diseases and can affect much more than just our joints and skeletal muscles,” says Bagnulo. “This process can cause heart disease, aging of the brain, digestive distress and controls numerous disease processes.”

Learn more about those foods that are hidden sources of inflammation and discover foods that can help you put out this fire.
