In his book “Anti Cancer – A New Way Of Life” Dr David Servan-Schreiber discusses how inflammation is our enemy.
Inflammation in our bodies is a reaction to some sort of damage to our cells, through some sort of shock or physical trauma like, burns, cuts, infections by viruses or bacteria, even rubbing and chafing.
Inflammation is described as:-
it’s red, it’s swollen, it’s warm and it’s painful.
Our immune systems react to inflammation to heal our bodies in ways far too technical for me to understand fully or describe. The problem is that apparently there is also another face to our immune response to inflammation – it can work against us by over-reacting and being diverted to promote cancerous growths.
There are distinct links between certain types of cancers and inflammation. For example:-
Cervical cancer – papilloma virus
Liver cancer – Hepatitis virus
Dr Servan-Schreiber’s book obviously gives much more information.
In short, inflammation has a key role in promoting cancer and we should do all we can to avoid it.
So how can we avoid and reduce inflammation in our bodies?
By eating the right foods, managing our stress levels, getting regular exercise and trying to remove toxins from our environment.
