Eating a Mediterranean-style diet can reduce inflammation

A new US study has confirmed a connection between being overweight or obese and experiencing chronic pain. The good news is that the researchers also identified a way to reduce this pain, which is the result of inflammation in the body: eating a Mediterranean-style diet. Since many of the foods included in typical Mediterranean dishes, including fish, beans and nuts have anti-inflammatory properties, the scientists believe them to be responsible for lowered pain levels in their study group of 98 women and men ranging age from 20 to 78.
