We’ve known for 14 years that a single meal of meat, dairy, and eggs triggers an inflammatory reaction inside the body within hours of consumption. This results in a stiffening of our arteries. Within 5 or 6 hours, the inflammation starts to cool down, but then what happens? Lunchtime! At that point we can whack our arteries with another load of animal products for lunch. In this routine, we may be stuck in a chronic low-grade inflammation danger zone for most of our lives.

This can set us up for inflammatory diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers one meal at a time.similar inflammatory reactions were triggered by whipped cream, which is mostly just animal fat. After digging deeper, investigators discovered that after eating meat, one’s bloodstream becomes soiled with bacterial toxins known as endotoxins. No wonder there’s so much inflammation!
