Heart disease = inflammation?

I'm trying to make a case about the cause of heart disease. I'd like some studies on inflammation (and maybe arterial calcification) being the cause of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, etc. Do any Paleohackers have studies or experience in this area?

If so, what seems to be most helpful in reducing inflammatory response WITHOUT going paleo? (Assuming I can't convince anyone to give it a try.)

Well I can't answer your whole question, but for arterial calcification I'd suggest you check out vitamin k2-mk4.

End the addiction to WHEAT. Wheat consumption over time causes multiple types of inflammation. Its the #1 cause for diabetes AND heart disease. Eating wheat results in high insulin levels, thickened colon walls, and more adipose tissue. The addiction to wheat is the most mind blowing not too mention the way it makes you feel when you quit.
