MIDLAND PARK, N.J. -- Learn about anti-inflammatory eating at a workshop on Wednesday, Aug. 31 at the senior activity center in Midland Park.

The chief dietitian at the Christian Health Care Center in Wyckoff, Joan Katz, R.D., will present "Anti-Inflammatory Foods for Your Health" from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Northwest Senior Activity Center.

Many major diseases — including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and Alzheimer's — have been linked to chronic inflammation, according to Harvard Health . Nutrition is one of the most powerful tools to combat inflammation.

Anti-inflammatory foods include tomatoes; olive oil; green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and collards; nuts like almonds and walnuts; fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna and sardines; and fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, cherries and oranges.

Studies have also associated nuts with reduced markers of inflammation and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Coffee, which contains polyphenols and other anti-inflammatory compounds, may protect against inflammation as well.

The Northwest Senior Activity Center is located at 46-50 Center St., Midland Park.
