It's no secret that fruits and vegetables contain beneficial nutrients, but some are more potent than others at fighting the chronic inflammation that underlies many major diseases, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer's. That's what British researchers found when they tested the ability of different foods to reduce age-related chronic inflammation and the development of such diseases. The study, published in the British Journal of Nutrition, suggested that older people could benefit from curcumin and resveratrol supplements, and identified the following as especially good anti-inflammatory foods:

red-yellow-onions

Açai berries
Apples
Black currants
Green tea
Onions
Red, purple,
and black grapes
Whole wheat

black-grapes
