When you say “diet” most people think of weight loss. But in a broader sense, when you think diet you should think “eating in a way that insures my health”. While its healthy to eat to lose weight, the right diet can also guard against future diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and more. What is that diet? It is the anti-inflammatory diet.
Dr. Andrew Weil is a proponent of the anti-inflammatory diet. In a blog post on his website DrWeil.com he describes the health benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet.
What Does An Anti-Inflammatory Diet Do?

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases
Age-related disorders, including many cancers
Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
