The negative side effects of metabolism

Enemy number one: Inflammatory stress

Enemy number one: inflammatory stress (also known as ‘silent inflammatory response’, or ‘silent inflammation’) is a type of inflammation that causes absolutely no pain, progressing unnoticed and laying the groundwork for major chronic age-related diseases. Normally,  inflammation is the body's way to fight infections and pathogens, and it's triggered naturally by certain fatty acids in our food (omega 6) and stopped by sister fatty acids (omega 3) – provided we consume the proper balance of the two. 

Omega 6 fatty acids have come to outweigh omega 3 fatty acids in our diet by as much as twenty to one.

This is where the first problem occurs: in the typical modern diet, omega 6 fatty acids (especially those in many industrially-processed vegetable oils) have come to outweigh omega 3 fatty acids (found in fish oil, cold-pressed linseed oil, hemp oil, rapeseed oil and walnuts) by as much as twenty to one! This imbalance causes our bodies to experience unceasing waves of inflammation because omega 3, the potent antagonist that could potentially stop the inflammation, is lacking.

It was only about a decade ago that anti-aging medicine began to seriously address the consequences of this risk factor.  Today, the silent inflammatory response that can reoccur continually over years and even decades is regarded as a major cause of a number of diseases that can lead to death. Silent inflammation puts millions of people in danger of suffering from cardiovascular diseases, cognitive decline and uncontrolled cell growth – and not only in old age.

We burn sugars, carbohydrates and fats with the help of oxygen, an extremely reactive gas. During this process, individual molecules continually break free and attack portions of our cells.
