Systemic chronic inflammation (SCI) has been shown to cause several diseases that, together, are the leading causes of disability and death worldwide,media reported. In a study published in December 2019, researchers revealed the multi-layered mechanism behind SCI and a set of the most important risk factors in causing this harmful health phenotym. Key to these factors are lack of physical activity, infection, environmental and industrial poisons, poor eating habits and psychological stress.
The study, called “The Life Span of Chronic Inflammation in disease Etiology,” is the result of intense work by scientists and researchers from large health institutions around the world.
The most common triggers for SCI:
Lack of physical activition
Isolated and chronic stress
The exogenous substances associated with SCI include the following (but not limited to):
Hazardous waste products
These factors are the most common triggers for SCI. In turn, SCI can lead to a range of serious illnesses, disabilities, and death. Taken together, these factors are what these researchers call “the world’s main cause of disability and death.”
Potential consequences of SCI:
Type 2 diabetes
Non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFLD)
“This happens in a situation where the relationship between inflammation and chronic diseases is widely accepted, but the huge cost of treating the global population is severely plagued by SCI-related chronic health problems, leading to instability in the health care system,” said David Furman, who led the study. So it’s time to start seriously looking at how to prevent and treat the risk of SCI-related diseases among children and adults. “
