How can fried foods affect your anti-inflammatory diet?

ANSWER

Some foods can encourage inflammation in your body or make it worse. Among them are high-fat foods. And frying foods in vegetable oil doesn't make them healthy. Corn, safflower, and other vegetable oils all have omega-6 fatty acids. If you get too much omega-6, it can help lead to inflammation.
