Can an Anti-Inflammation Diet Really Work?

Diet Changes Gave Her a New Life

I’ve come a long way from being told I am prediabetic and have high cholesterol. I had been struggling to go up a short flight of stairs. Now I am enjoying life. I hike, dance the night away, rock climb, skate, and water ski. This is all because of changing my eating habits and juicing. —Iris

  1. Figs are not in season here now. They are a summer fruit.
    Surely it is better to eat them then, after picking them from my own garden,
    rather than buy those tasteless ones coming from thousands of miles away?
