American food is full of inflammatory ingredients, unlike indian, chinese and italian food.
Indian food is a combination of inflammatory and anti inflammatory ingredients. For example, we have white rice with curry. White rice is highly inflammatory, but curry has ingredients such as garlic, ginger and other spices which counter inflammatory effects of the white rice.Indians also eat yoghurt with rice at the end of the meal to replenish the probiotics required to digest the food.
Italian food also employs spices and red wine to counter the inflammatory effects of the food.Chines e food has green tea and soy sauce as anti inflammatory ingredients.
Sadly a typical american meal at Mcdonalds or Taco bell does not have any anti inflammatory ingredients.
