Many of the foods we eat cause inflammation but eating better can help. I am a strong believer in a diet of omega-3 rich foods and this book is one of my bibles. It's based on research and evidence-based recommendations with explanations that are understandable and helpful.

If you don’t have time to read the book…
The essential fats are needed in tiny quantities. To avoid inflammation in North America, aim for very low Omega-6 fat intake. We are awash in highly processed seed oils, soybean, cottonseed, etc.. Enjoy safe Omega-3 food sources, and aim to keep your Omega-6 to Omega-3 intake to between 1 (best) to 1; and 3 (still OK) to 1. Saturated fats are stable and tend to lower inflammation, not raise it. Eat as rewuired.

This mish-mash of ideas, kinda pesco-pollo meditteranean misses the mark on a number of fronts.. Let us be clear. A book that equates saturated fats like coconut or non-CAFO meat products with commercial frankenfoods like trans fats might be funded by the canola oil industry. Or fuelled by a lack of basic nutrition knowledge.
They rank the aforementioned, partially hydrogenated canola oil (Canadian Oil, Low Acid) with olive oil. Since the manufacturer keeps the “Trans” portion under 0.5 g per serving, voila! It’s got no Trans Fat. A modern day manufacturing Miracle.
On page 20, “Regular consumption of olive, canola… and therefore they should all be included in your diet. Some authors are dangerous because they don’t know what they don’t know. I hope not too many are injured from this highly inflammatory advice.

Because it is in the title, I would have appreciated a definition of inflammation and its problems before getting into the details. The OPL description in the catalogue was more informative. Lots of interesting looking recipes - after the first info section, I didn't really pay atttention to the divisions that the recipes were sorted into.
