Saturated fats are found in red meat, butter and cheese. Saturated fats trigger inflammation in fat tissue. This type of inflammation is particularly dangerous for your heart and is known to make arthritis pain worse.
The other issue with red meat is that it contains advanced glycation end products (AGEs). AGEs stimulate inflammation. When food is cooked at high temperatures – grilling, frying, toasting, roasting or broiling – AGEs form. High levels are associated with inflammation-related diseases like diabetes, heart disease, kidney failure, and Alzheimer’s.
