Cholesterol. Inflammation. What can we hack?

"We've long known that atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease. In the absence of inflammation or injury to the endothelial cell, the cholesterol would never go through the arterial wall and it would never stay there."

Dr. Dwight Lundell, in Cholesterol Clarity, page 37 by Jimmy Moore, Eric Westman, MD.

"When we're talking about inflammation, I like to look at what's causing it. If the client's C-reactive protein levels are high, I want to look for the root cause of the inflammation and what's causing the damage. Things like smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, consuming trans fats and processed carbohydrates, having high blood sugar levels, chemical exposure, high blood pressure, and stress can all contribute to this. Everything on this list is very different than blaming inflammation on a high-fat diet, which is what many trusted professionals will point their finger at right away."

Cassie Bjork, RD, in Cholesterol Clarity, page 38 by Jimmy Moore, Eric Westman, MD.
