Prior knowledge I have:
Body heats up when there is higher than normal metabolism.
During a fever the body increases metabolism and there by the body temp to fight
Certain food items increase body temperature, like eggs/protein
If the body is trying to increase the heat why not assist it through use of such food (garlic/eggs etc)
Is it good for the body when we induce extra metabolism
Any resources/links/books/PDF is appreciated. Please point out any mistakes in the prior knowledge and add points to the prior knowledge that are required for the logical deduction
