Inflammation: a double-edged sword

A robust and healthy immune response is essential to combat infection and eliminate harmful substances from the body. Inflammation alerts our immune system to take appropriate action. In cancer, this inflammatory response becomes uncontrolled and cancer cells find ways to evade being eliminated by the immune system. Stress exacerbates inflammatory responses and stress is hard to eliminate from our lives. Stress is a double-edged sword that exacerbates inflammation, when left unchecked.

Join Dr. Aditi Bhargava, a stress researcher to ask questions and learn more about how stress contributes to inflammation.
