Dr. Seaman coined the term "DeFlame" as a simple educational tool to help better understand the benefits of replacing pro-inflammatory foods with anti-inflammatory vegetables, fruit, nuts, and roots/tubers. He first identified that diet promotes inflammation based on research published in the 1970s and 1980s. Most have only begun to see this relationship in recent years. In contrast, Dr Seaman has written multiple articles and chapters on this topic over the past 25 years. The DeFlame Diet is about eating anti-inflammatory foods to turn off the chronic disease-promoting "flame" created by pro-inflammatory foods. This is the first nutrition book for the general public that delves into inflammation in great detail, yet in a fashion that is understandable. Readers will never be confused again about what foods we should and should not be eating.

What is Ergonomics? The word ‘ergonomics’ comes from the Greek words ‘ergon’ which means work, and ‘nomos’ which means natural laws. Ergonomics can thus be defined simply as the natural laws of work. More specifically, ergonomics is the scientific study of designing the job and workplace to fit the worker, keeping in mind their capabilities and limitations. Ergonomics combines the knowledge from other scientific disciplines like anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, engineering, psychology, and statistics to ensure that workplace designs complement the strengths of people and minimize the effects of their limitations. Ergonomics is also known as human factors, and the terms are often used interchangeably. Ergonomists and human factors specialists seek to understand how a workplace, product, tool, or system can be best designed to fit the people who need to use it. The goal is to apply this knowledge to improve the system, human performance, and productivity, while also focusing on the health, safety, and well-being of the individuals involved. Why is Ergonomics Important? Think about how many hours each day you spend sitting. If you work in an office setting, you are likely sitting more than most people. According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) statistics, on average, 95% of an office worker’s day is spent sitting in front of the computer. Sitting in front of a computer all day for work is a relatively new concept that has become more common over the past two decades. Consequently, the adverse health effects associated with prolonged sitting have become more prevalent and are exacerbated when working at a computer. This is often due to poorly designed computer workstations and the physical stress that it places on joints, muscles, tendons, and nerves of the body. However, most of us don’t realize the harmful effects of prolonged computer use until many years later. This is because the harmful effects of using poorly designed computer workstations are NOT immediate, and the discomfort we initially feel is very mild, thus we tend to ignore them. We later assume our neck aches, back pain, headaches, and poor posture are due to getting older and “our own fault” for not exercising enough and being lazy. We fail to realize that our workstation is harming us and putting physical stress on our bodies which can eventually lead to musculoskeletal disorders. What are Musculoskeletal Disorders? Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries of the soft tissues (muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints) and nervous system. Work-related MSDs affect nearly all tissues and areas of the body, though the most frequently affected are the arms and back. These disorders have a variety of names, including cumulative trauma disorders (CTDs) and repetitive strain injuries (RSIs). These disorders include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, thoracic outlet syndrome, neck and low back pain, sciatica, and strain/sprain injuries. What Causes Work-Related MSDs? MSDs arise from risk factors, or physical stressors, that would not typically result in undue stress or harm if only performed once. That is why MSDs typically develop gradually over weeks, months, and years. MSD risk factors include force, repetition, awkward postures, static postures, quick motions, compression or contact stress, vibration, and cold temperatures. The most common risk factors among office workers are repetitive motions that can irritate tendons and increase pressure on nerves (long hours of typing or using a mouse), poor body mechanics and awkward postures (slouching in an office chair or holding a telephone to your ear with your shoulder), and prolonged static posture with inadequate recovery time that can constrict blood flow and damage muscles (intensive hours at the keyboard with few breaks). All of these risk factors, either alone or in combination, can cause or exacerbate MSDs when present for a sufficient duration, frequenc
