There is growing evidence of the relationship between inflammation and cancer. Inflammation is further implicated in a number of diseases such as heart disease, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s. It may be a very early push-factor that could induce healthy cells along the path to becoming cancerous.

There is already evidence that obesity increases the risk of developing some cancers and that obesity increases inflammation throughout the body. So a diet that focuses on reducing inflammation could be well-advised for many people.

The Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid developed by Dr. Weil is a great start and approach to reducing inflammation - http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02995/Dr-Weil-Anti-Inflammatory-Food-Pyramid.html
