Today, I want to cover the most inflammatory food in the world.

There is a lot of debate over what the most inflammatory food is. Some people say meat, while others say it's the fiber in plants.

Some people do well consuming fiber, and others don’t. Why? Humans can’t digest fiber. Your microbes are what break down fiber by fermenting it.

While fiber is anti-inflammatory, unfermented fiber is inflammatory. If you don’t have enough of the right microbes in your gut, you could have more of an issue with fiber than other people.

Certain things like antibiotics, improper nutrition as a child, ultra-processed foods, and glyphosate can alter your microbiome and lead to inflammation.

The most inflammatory foods in the world are ultra-processed foods: a basic recipe of sugar, flour, and seed oils with a dash of glyphosate.

    As an African, raised in the countryside of South East Nigeria, I grew up in a family that obtained 80% of their food from our domestic farm [plants, goats and poultry]. I had no single inflammation growing up. I was healthy and never knew such things as ulcer and inflammation. I moved uptown for greener pastures and boom EVERYTHING collapsed. Now I spent 60% of my earnings treating health issues that shouldn’t have arisen. I lost my twin brother 2years ago to Colon Cancer, and kept battling my gut issues until I stumbled on your page here. Thanks Dr Berg for what you do with these enlightening videos. I’ve started IF and watch what I eat now and I’m healthier and grateful to God directing me towards your resourceful videos.

      It’s not red meat that sits in your gut and rots. It’s plants/fiber that does. Fiber over taxes the digestive system. You never fart when eating carnivore. Farting and most other gut disorders is 100% from plant based foods. Human beings were designed to run on meat/fat.

      Consider HRT. this fixed absolutely everything for me. I ate well, worked out, and was 140 lbs until my periods stopped, then all hell broke loose. that was 13 years ago. I tried every thing. gained 106 lbs. finally got HRT, and recently thyroid NDT, now I am losing a lobs or 2 a week without trying, and gaining my life back. no need to drink gross fermented stuff. but I do eat yogourt and about 12 cups of veg and 2 fruits a day. plus meats, but never any oils, just good ole butter, cream, and olive oil. no processed anything, not even any canned or boxed stuff. all from scratch. I am 63 now, and I eat cake every day (but I make it with natural non wheat flours and use dates or fruits to sweeten.

    Eric, notes I’ve picked up that may help your future research: Glyphosates use popularity happened at the end of the 1970s, it’s sprayed on wheat just before harvest to kill and forcibly dry the wheat (corn/beans get sprayed earlier in the season for weed control). HFCS and seed oils replaced real sugar and animal fats during the 1980 recession/inflation surge as food companies scrambled to remove costs from their products. The whole thing about New Coke was to introduce the switch to HFCS. Get a stack of high school yearbooks and look at the activity pages photographs (which will have photos of general population students) from 1975 to 1985 and you can see what happened. Now, what do you expect those food companies are doing during this cycle of high inflation? …

      In the Seven Countries Study, associations between the intake of food-groups and 25-year mortality from coronary heart disease (CHD, defined as sudden coronary death or fatal myocardial infarction) were investigated. Baseline surveys were carried out between 1958 and 1964. A number of individual characteristics were measured in 12,763 middle-aged men belonging to 16 cohorts in seven countries (USA, Finland, The Netherlands, Italy, former Yugoslavia, Greece and Japan). Dietary information was collected in sub-samples using the weighed record method. Vital status of all participants was verified at regular intervals during 25 years of follow-up and the underlying cause of death was adjudicated. Eighteen different food-groups and combinations were considered for comparison among cohorts. Large differences in food-group consumption were seen, with high consumption of dairy products in Northern Europe, meat in the USA, vegetables, legumes, fish, and wine in Southern Europe, and cereals, soy products, and fish in Japan. Population death rates from CHD showed large differences, ranging from 268 per 1000 in East Finland to 25 per 1000 in Crete, Greece. Animal food-groups were directly correlated, and vegetable food-groups (except potatoes) as well as fish and alcohol were inversely correlated with CHD mortality. Univariate analysis showed significant positive correlation coefficients for butter (R = 0.887), meat (R = 0.645), pastries (R = 0.752), and milk (R = 0.600) consumption, and significant negative correlation coefficients for legumes (R = -0.822), oils (R = -0.571), and alcohol (R = -0.609) consumption. Combined vegetable foods (excluding alcohol) were inversely correlated (R = -0.519), whereas combined animal foods (excluding fish) were directly correlated (R = 0.798) with CHD death rates. Multivariate stepwise analysis selected butter, lard + margarine and meat as significant predictors and produced an R2 of 0.922. These findings were confirmed by factor analysis. These cross-cultural analyses are consistent with the hypothesis that dietary patterns are important determinants of differences in population CHD death rates, and confirm the opposite effects on apparent risk of animal and vegetable foods.@@kitxxxxxxx
