Chronic Inflammation Makes One Fat by Blocking Insulin Receptors

I had to mention this when I read it. I was in a bit of shock at this revelation! I guess it makes sense: Jonny Bowden's article.

Roger Deutsch, co-author of the excellent book, "Your Hidden Food Allergies Are Making You Fat" had this to say: "Now we know that chronic inflammation, caused primarily by exposure to incompatible foods, is at the root of metabolic problems like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and obesity. The immune system chemicals block insulin receptors; so, guess what happens to the sugars we eat? - they get stored as fat. Cut the inflammation, cut the fat storage."
