134: What's the Deal with Inflammatory Foods?

Seems like there are plenty of social media posts and ads that are insisting that inflammation caused by food is causing all of your ills. One claims they stopped eating white bread and his skin cleared up. Another says that their chronic pain disappeared after cutting out red meat. Are these claims too good to be true? Nutritionist Thunder Jalili explains what gut inflammation can actually do to the body and what foods you should—and should not—be eating.
