Robyn O’Brien on the Connection Between Food and Inflammation

By Nancy Smorch

I just realized today that I never shared this video with you guys!

I watched Robyn O’Brien a few years ago talk about the changes in our food system here in the U.S., and it was the first time I had really listened to someone that was more of an analyst who actually dug deeper to find the reasons behind the crazy things that were happening in the health of our country's children and adults.  It’s an outstanding explanation of how we got to where we are.

Fast forward a few years, and today the topic that is starting to get more attention in the health arena is inflammation - in particular, silent inflammation.

Silent inflammation is the inflammation that you may not necessarily feel or can’t see, but it is going on inside your body and causing damage at the cellular level.  It is now believed to be the root cause of a number of ailments, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

You see, when our bodies come in contact with a “foreign invader," its natural response is inflammation.

Watch the video and the light bulb will go on for you!  You will also be equipped to educate others about the importance of choosing your foods wisely.
