When I was researching sugar and why it’s bad for you, one of the things that came up was that it causes inflammation. I decided I should look into the inflammation issue further to find out what the deal is, and as always, I found that there’s a lot of information and opinion on the subject. Apparently, inflammation is a good and bad thing, basically it’s good when it’s due to your body fighting something off, and it’s bad if it runs out of control (chronic inflammation).
I haven’t gotten that deep into it yet, but so far it’s depressing. Right now it seems like one of those things where if you want to find out you shouldn’t eat anything that tastes good, you should look it up. It’s frustrating, but I’m hoping that as I get more information, it will be less depressing. I can tell you right now that Dave and I are not going to go sugar-free, dairy free, and gluten-free.
