Overview

A powerful new program for preventing the diseases of aging—based on cutting edge research

In recent stories, both the New York Times and CNN reported on the vital link between inflammation and the risk of heart disease, as well as diseases associated with aging including arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, frailty, osteoporosis, and some cancers. The Inflammation Cure is on the cutting edge of this research, exposing this connection and showing readers how to protect themselves.

  • Reveals what causes inflammation and how you can tell if you have it
  • Presents a comprehensive program to reduce inflammation and promote wellness
  • Provides information on anti-inflammatory foods and supplements, medications, exercise, and more

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
What do seemingly unrelated diseases such as lupus, arthritis, atherosclerosis, asthma, and Alzheimer's all have in common? According to Meggs (toxicology, Brody Sch. of Medicine, East Carolina Univ.), uncontrolled inflammation is a component of these and many other ailments. In Part 1 of this readable, scientifically sound, and well-referenced title, he explains the inflammation process, which is designed to repair damage caused by injury or invasion by bacteria or other foreign bodies. When there is severe, chronic, or inappropriate inflammation in the body, other problems occur. He then discusses the role of inflammation in aging and disease and includes a quiz for readers to assess their own risk factors. In the final section, Meggs offers recommendations for reducing inflammation, most of which will sound familiar: quit smoking, exercise, eat more veggies and less meat, and avoid pollutants, toxins, and allergens. While Jack Challem's The Inflammation Syndrome covers similar ground, his approach leans toward the faddish and sensationalist, while Meggs takes a more levelheaded approach, weaving the latest research on various diseases into a broad picture. Recommended for public libraries and health collections. (Index not seen.)-Eris Weaver, Redwood Health Lib., Petaluma, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Levelheaded advice

    I strongly recommend this book to everyone interested in a long comfortable life and general good health. The book has inflammation as its central focus, and Dr. Meggs convincingly describes inflammation related connections amongst an amazingly broad spectrum of conditions, diseases, nutrients, attitudes, and other factors. As a non-medical lay person, my impression in reading the book was that the title is a bit inadequate, since the book covers so many issues. While the straightforward, lucid style in which facts and ideas are presented makes the book's inflammation related advice accessable in a pragmatic fashion, Meggs seems to cover so much territory with his recommendations that this work could almost be understood as a broad guidebook for living a healthy and happy life in general, albeit with inflammation as the book's raison d'etre. Certainly I have wondered how and why various drugs functioned in my body, and I have learned a great deal on that subject here. The same can be said about foods, moods, and the air we breathe; it all gets clearly mentioned. Looking at the back portion of the book reveals the depth of research that went into the writing of it, and Dr. Meggs has not speculated with much of what he says - it's all backed up with facts that can be verified. I enjoyed the book (it's a fun and easy read). I was left with the impression that I was reading solid medical advice, not romantic fantasy.
