Fast Food Causes Inflammation and Overactive Immune System

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that fast food with its high fat, high sugar, and low fiber isn't good for you.  But scientists have discovered that fast food can cause inflammatory response in mice, due to the unhealthy nature of the food.  What's more, even when returned to a healthy diet and maintained a healthy diet for weeks, while the immune response abated, the immune genes remained "switched on."  This has a long term effect and may hasten the development of vascular diseases and Type 2 Diabetes.

So, it's obvious that eating foods that are high in fiber and lower in fat are key to keeping your immune system from freaking out and causing inflammation that can lead to diabetes, clogged arteries, stroke, and heart attacks.  Read about it HERE.
