Silent killer – inflammation and heart disease

Yesterday I told you about two different types of inflammation – classic inflammation, the type of inflammation that happens when you stub your toe or get a splinter in your finger and silent inflammation that results from chronic low level damage to cells. Today I’m going to tell you how this low level inflammation can result in heart disease. Now this might be a little out there for some of you, especially as we have been brain washed in to thinking that saturated fat and cholesterol blocks arteries and causes heart attacks. But what researchers are now finding out is that inflammation is perhaps the major player here, not cholesterol.
