15 Foods that Cause Inflammation

Sugary Foods

Sugar is one of the most common ingredients in our diet. However, this substance would cause many harmful health effects, including inflammation and risks of disease. Those people who consume doughnuts, cookies, cakes, chocolate, soda, fruit juice, and other sugary drinks frequently would have a higher level of uric acid, which eventually drives their insulin resistance and inflammation. Also, sugar would provide excess amounts of fructose, which is associated with kidney disease, cancer, liver disease, diabetes, insulin resistance, and obesity. Also, fructose would trigger inflammation in your endothelial cells lining the blood vessels, which can be a major risk factor for your heart disease. [2]
