Is there a book, ebook or internet resource with a nutritional table (drawn from recent scientific studies) showing or describing inflammatory and anti-inflammatory characteristics of vegan and vegetarian foods?

There has to be a cookbook out there that does this. There are many anti-inflammatory cookbooks. One of them probably has such a table. Gold is only as good as one's digging.

  • Bey, Ronald - Anti-inflammatory: Gout out - Vegan's Way- 50 Recipes- Halal: Vegan Asian Food

  • Bey, Ronald - Cookbook: Vegan's Way - Kidney Health Recipes: Anti- Inflammatory - 50 Halal Recipes

  • Manski & Stein - Vitality Diet - The Vegetarian Vegan Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Recipe Book

  • Moore, Melanie - Vegan Anti - Inflammatory Diet Recipes: Healthy - Easy Prep - Anti - Inflammation Recipes

  • Press & Liaqat - The Vegan Cookbook Anti-Inflammatory Vegan Recipes

I'm not sure if claims made in these books are true. Although, there are descriptions of the anti-inflammatory properties of certain parts of the recipes in the previews to them. Enjoy.
