The more that medical experts study disease, the more frequently inflammation seems to rear its problematic head.
“There are a lot of people that think a lot of illnesses are related to inflammation,” Dr. Christopher Snell, former chair of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome advisory committee to the U.S. Secretary for Health, said. Snell, with over 30 years of specialized experience, is widely published and has lectured in the U.S. and abroad, including for the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health.
Surprisingly, Snell mentioned cardiovascular disease. “It is increasingly being looked at as an inflammatory disease, with chronic immune activation as a significant contributor to the illness.”
