I am reading The Paleo Solution and the section about grains causing inflammation throughout the body.
My question is could this be a cause for tonsilitis? I realise tonsilitis is an infection but could grains consumed on a mainly paleo diet perhaps instigate this by causing inflammation and irritation which leads to infection?

When my 9-year-old consumes wheat, within 3 days he has a severe sinus infection. It took a few times for us to make the connection. I don't think the wheat causes the infection directly, but it knocks his immune system down and allows bacteria to take hold.
