Role of Inflammation

Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury, infection or a foreign invader that may cause an acute or chronic reaction. It is necessary for healing, but when it becomes chronic and gets out of control, problems begin. The buzz word these days in Medical Science is Inflammation. We now know that inflammation is the trigger that not only causes the expression of undesirable gene traits, it is also a catalyst for chronic degenerative diseases and cancer and contributes to the acceleration of the aging process. Many times it is difficult to pinpoint the causes of chronic low-grade inflammation, which seems to put otherwise healthy people at risk for various diseases. Dr Peter Libby, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, says: "I think we have an epidemic of unhealthy lifestyles, and the way in which the lifestyle is wreaking havoc is through inflammation." Understanding the common causes of inflammation is your key to creating a truly healthy lifestyle and diet.
