Inflammation The Slient Killer

Professor Drew's Classroom - Inflammation The Silent Killer

Inflammation is a Secret or Silent Killer.  As we know from the research over the past several years, there is a surprising link between Inflammation and heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and many other diseases.
This was the cover of Time Magazine back in February 2004.  The article explains the link between chronic illness and inflammation as follows: 
Most of the time inflammation is a life saving procedure that allows the body to fight off infection from bacteria, virus and parasites. (Yes even in the industrial world we are constantly being bombarded by pathogens).  The instant any of these potentially deadly microbes slip into the body, inflammation marshals a defense attack that lays waste to both the invader and any tissue it may have infected.  Then just as quickly, the process subsides and healing begins.  Every once in a while, the whole feverish process doesn’t shut down on cue. In any event, the inflammation becomes chronic rather that transitory.
