Have you ever wondered if diet, inflammation and chronic disease were all linked? Well, you're right!

More than simply being a pain in your backside (often quite literally), chronic inflammation is closely linked to metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

While genetic or lifestyle factors can lead to chronic disease, science now shows that diet is a major contributing factor.

And while people often associate sugar consumption with obesity and type 2 diabetes, evidence suggests that seed oils may be just as devastating to our health as sugar.
