The reinforcement of the body’s immune system should begin with a proper diet and temperature regulation.
Chronic inflammation is referred to as the “silent killer” because it is not only a potential risk factor for various diseases but also promotes tumor growth, carcinogenesis, progression, and metastasis. Today, medical science recognizes that the battle against inflammation and the reinforcement of the body’s immune system should begin with a proper diet and temperature regulation.
Inflammation is a normal physiological response initiated by the immune system in response to bodily damage, allowing cells to rebuild damaged tissues. However, at times, it can persist and become chronic. Over time, chronic inflammation can damage cellular DNA and disrupt normal cell growth and division, eventually leading to the growth of tumors and the development of cancer.
A study published in the renowned journal Immunity in 2019 revealed that chronic inflammation that induces cancer includes inflammatory bowel disease, chronic hepatitis, H. pylori-induced gastritis, and parasitic flatworm-induced bladder inflammation. These conditions increase the risk of developing colorectal, liver, stomach, and bladder cancers, respectively. On the other hand, chronic inflammation induced by obesity, high blood sugar, and excessive lipid accumulation increases the risk of many different cancers, including pancreatic, colon, breast, and others.
