“Processed foods cause inflammation, a source of most chronic illnesses as well as stress.”

Dr. Paula Grammas, Chief Research Officer for Tribute Senior Living, believes that chronic inflammation reduction is at the core of many diseases. Dr. Grammas is working closely with Tribute to discover and implement programs that reduce chronic inflammation and promote overall improvement in health and brain function.
