There are numerous websites on high inflammation foods. Yes, you need to find out what your triggers are but there are some that you would never know. It's best to stay away from the obvious ones that are listed on those sites.

Hunter Pence of the SF Giants is paleo too. Pence does not make paleo look good (he is athletic, but not a good player) but Ibanez certainly does. At his advanced age, he contributed a lot to last year's Yankees playoff push.

As the title states, does an excess of omega 6 fats in and of itself cause inflammation, or rather does it simply facilitate an overly aggressive inflammatory response to harmful stimuli?

It is complicated but probably not. That doesn't make it good though. In general, we know very little about surrogate markers for health, like markers for inflammation, so don't make assumptions regarding them. If omega 6 doesn't cause some... (more)
