Whenever cut, bruise on the outer layer of the skin takes place, we understand it by pain, redness, at times water oozing out and swelling. In scientific terminology, it is called as inflammation, which is a part and parcel of body’s defence mechanism, so that cut, bruise will not spread.
This inflammation which is external is called as Acute Inflammation- can be seen, observed, felt and treated too. But our body is also facing internal inflammation which is in the system, remains silent and no symptoms are observed. This inflammation increases when far more quantity of free radicals are produced in the body. Free radicals are dangerous which are known to affect/ harm every living cell in human body. If not controlled in time, it creates havoc in the body.
Body’s own defence do try to take care of this inflammation, but when this asymptomatic untreated inflammation remains for long it is then called as “Chronic Inflammation.”
Can be seen
Can be treated immediately
Remains silent & untreated
Our own unhealthy habits are responsible for development of more and more free radicals, which keep on destroying our good, healthy cells. Unfortunately, this development takes place without our knowledge and without any sign and symptoms. Following factors are responsible for allowing internal inflammation – “Chronic Inflammation” to spread.
Tobacco chewing or smoking
Poor intake of fruits or vegetables.
Almost zero culture of sports and exercise.
Excessive consumption of alcohol etc.
In fact most of us eagerly start exercise regime. Unfortunately that does not last long and mostly by the fortnight, with exercise, we are back to square one. As if this is not enough, our cooking habits, roadside food consumption of extra calories and reused oilgoes up. Besides excess use of refined oil in cooking ,our omega 6 consumption goes up as compared to Omega 3. Excess amount of Omega 6 is bad to body as it promotes inflammation while Omega 3 acts as anti inflammatory. All these important factors help inflammatory process to settle and thus inviting diseases to spread.
