TNF-inhibitors[edit]

TNF inhibitors suppress inflammation. Shouldn't they be mentioned in the article ? Rod57 (talk) 03:05, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Puzzling "seven" in 1.3[edit]

Not urgently important but should eventually be looked into: In the third paragraph of subsection 1.3, the word "seven".Svato (talk) 19:40, 3 October 2010 (UTC)

oily fish (which contain higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids)[edit]

higher levels compared to what, exactly? How much more?96.24.93.114 (talk) 03:13, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

When compared to other fish. --Khajidha (talk) 17:59, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

More info on diet[edit]

There is lots of information on the Internet about anti-inflammatory diets. Only a small bit made it to Wikipedia. I would love it if someone qualified would expand this section and perhaps create an article. Some question I have:

  • Why do refined carbs cause inflammation? What about whole grains?
  • What is the mechanism for any food to cause inflammation? Does it happen during digestion or metabolism?
  • Why are saturated fats inflammatory?
  • Why are omega 3s anti-inflammatory? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.27.127.42 (talk) 16:11, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
There is a lot of information available on the internet but some is not considered to come from reliable sources. Dr Wells's Food Pyramid is not an obvious reliable source. jmcw (talk) 16:55, 22 July 2013 (UTC)
The whole Anti-inflammatory foods section is poorly sourced and much of the content will have to go unless WP:MEDRS quality sources are provided. - - MrBill3 (talk) 04:03, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Steroidal?[edit]

This article doesn't cover the Glucocorticoids at all, only the non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. Why? Shouldn't there be a section or at least a hat note? Yngvadottir (talk) 05:46, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

I think that'd make sense to include (coincidentally, that what I was interested in reading about). It would certainly help create a more thorough context as those two are the most significant classes of anti-inflammatory drugs. Well, I assume they are, but I'm no doctor. ☉ nbmatt 02:40, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
