Extra fat cells harbor viruses. And they are inflammatory molecules, which block the action of your immune system. Losing weight and getting to a more ideal weight, boosts your immune function. It reduces pain as much of pain is inflammation run amok. When you carry just 5 or more extra pounds of fat, you put an extra inflammatory load on all your tissues. PLOS 9.24.15

Distinct Type of Depression (Brain Inflammation) and the “I Spot” in the brain that identifies it

Inflamed Brain Our brain is our most important organ. Many of us aging folks are now more worried about outliving our wits, than getting cancer. Much of brain aging is actually brain inflammation. Inflamed brains age faster, and make us worried and depressed. What can we do about it? And is this real, or bogus? Emory Health Science researchers wanted to know, too. They found that 1/3rd of depressed people have inflamed brains. These people have elevated blood inflammatory markers and the inflammation can be distinctly viewed on brain imaging. Wow! No more hiding inflamed brains, we can see you! Brain [...]

Gut Aging Effecting Aging in General – the New “InflammAging” Theory of Aging

2020-02-25T17:11:10-06:00

The gut is the mother of our health. As well as digesting food, the gut plays a central role in programming our immune system. It also provides an effective barrier to bacteria that could make us ill. Immune cells that line the gut work to maintain the integrity of this barrier.  The gut wall immune cells also maintain the “correctness” of beneficial bacteria within and their “commensal conversations” that direct our immune system to stay alert. The gut wall also helps combat invasion into our inner cells, by pathogenic, non-beneficial bacteria and microbes.   Scientists and clinicians on the Norwich Research [...]
