A new study now says that the best way to live a long and healthy life is by taking up an anti-inflammatory diet.

A healthline story cited a study, published in Journal of Internal Medicine that suggests a diet that includes foods like fruits and vegetables that is associated with a lower risk of death at an early age.

The research, led by Joanna Kaluza, DSc, an associate professor at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland looked at 68,273 Swedish men and women between the ages of 45 and 83, whom they followed for 16 years.

The study found that those who stuck with mostly anti-inflammatory diet had an 18 per cent lower risk of all-cause mortality, 13 per cent lower risk of dying from cancer and 20 per cent lower risk of dying from heart disease.

According to Ali Webster, associate director of nutrition communications at the International Food Information Council Foundation, anti-inflammatory diet is a kind of diet that focuses on food that is high in nutrients, especially antioxidants and that have been tied with lowering markers of inflammation within the body.

However, the anti-inflammatory diet is also about what a person does not eat. Webster stressed that foods high in salt, saturated fat, sugar, and refined carbohydrates should be limited or avoided. (ANI)
