There are so many reasons for inflammation in the body, my job when working with my clients is to help figure out where the source(s) are coming from. One area I always discuss is industrial seed oils. Things like corn oil, soybean oil, canola oil, etc. are not only used for cooking but are commonly found in processed foods, which makes up a large portion of the typical American diet. Excessive intake of omega-6 oils contributes heavily to our imbalanced omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acid ratios, which promotes inflammation. While the recommended ratio is approximately 1:2 Americans commonly have a ratio of 1:20 or higher.
