shared by Dr. Anthony Vasile
Inflammation can get a bad rap in today’s society. Intermittent inflammation is actually a survival mechanism that our body uses during injury and infection. But when inflammation becomes chronic that is when it becomes a problem. Recent research has shown certain social, environmental and lifestyle factors can promote systemic inflammation. Which in turn leads to several diseases that represent most of the leading causes of disability and mortality worldwide, such as cancer, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, autoimmune diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s. There are several risk factors that make people susceptible to theses chronic diseases including physical inactivity, poor diet choices, environmental and industrial toxins, and psychological stress.
Chronic inflammatory diseases have been recognized as the most significant cause of death in the world today with more than 50% of all deaths being attributed to inflammation-related diseases. There is strong evidence that shows the risk of developing chronic inflammation can be traced back to early development from the habits we learned from the people we were raised by and the people we grew up with. These habits and effects are known to persist throughout the life span to affect adulthood health and risk of developing one of these chronic diseases which will eventually lead to early mortality.
