The immunologist and bestselling author Attilio Speciani dispels the clichés about so-called food intolerances and guides the reader to a healthy and better relationship with food. Colitis, migraines, hormonal changes, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, imbalances of metabolism and many other disorders, from the most common to the most severe, are often related to diet. There is a close relationship between food and health, and modern immunology has transformed this conviction, sometimes inadequately expressed for some diseases, into facts that are documented by scientific evidence. When the natural and physiological relationship with food changes, due to food excesses or the repeated introduction of food, the organism generates measurable inflammatory signals that induce and maintain many conditions or diseases. The most recent research says that food-related inflammation depends on both the kind of food eaten, on the relationship with all different sugars, and on the way foods are combined and the timing of their consumption.
Attilio Speciani is an MD, clinical immunologist and allergy specialist, is a lecturer at the University of Pavia for the Masters in Nutrition. Since the beginning of his career, he has worked on the relationship between nutrition, inflammation and well-being. He is the Scientific and Health Director of Eurosalus.com and Studiospeciani.it. The immunology of nutrition and the study of food-related inflammation, in their varied forms of application, are the research and clinical fields to which he applies most of his attention.
