The new index, an empirical dietary inflammatory index (eDII), is based on 8 pro-inflammatory components (red meats, processed meats, organ meats, other fish, eggs, sugar-sweetened beverages, tomatoes, and refined grains) and 8 anti-inflammatory components (leafy green vegetables, dark yellow vegetables, fruit juice, oily fish, coffee, tea, wine, and beer or other alcohol beverages).

Not a fan of their definition of inflammatory.

Booze and juice ? Garbage

Yeah, how is fruit juice anti-inflammatory when sugar-sweetened beverages are pro-inflammatory?

It’s not possible. Juice sales are falling for good reason. Apple = good, apple juice = processed junk food
