As a discussion on the role of inflammation in chronic disease and the effect on lifestyle, this text looks at cancer, autoimmune diseases, neurological diseases, pulmonary diseases, gastrointestinal diseases, metabolic diseases, and cardiovascular diseases. It examines the links between the diseases and risk factors such as chronic infections, obesity, alcohol, tobacco, radiation, environmental pollutants, and high-calorie diets. It covers anti-inflammatory agents made by man and Mother Nature as potential therapeutics to the symptoms and presents research on how the suppression of proinflammatory pathways may provide opportunities for both prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
