Chronic inflammation is one of the most dangerous things the human race is experiencing at this moment. It might start as a good thing when we get injured or ill, but things may go wrong in which can lead to scary health issues down the line.
First, we need to understand that inflammation is a necessary thing that falls into the same category as the immune system; it lets your body knows that something is wrong in order for the immune system to start doing its job.
For example, when you develop a sore throat or you sprain an ankle, the swelling and redness will be a result of the blood vessels dilating to transport the white blood cells to the injured area, and once the danger is over, the inflammation wears down.
However, the trouble starts when our immune system doesn’t play the rules accordingly. It incorrectly starts going after healthy tissues continuously believing they are threats. With time, our organs and arteries would stop handling the pressure, leading to developing more diseases.
It is our job to be well-informed about anything that can go wrong in our bodies, or we will end up living an unhealthy life where happiness and satisfaction are nowhere to be found.
