Is inflammation a good thing?

Yes and no. A short-term, localised inflammatory response is a very good thing when it attacks an infectious bacterium. It’s a very bad thing when chronic systemic inflammation smolders away on a low setting for extended periods constantly looking for work – and quietly burning off blood vessels and healthy organs in the process. Our body’s inflammation response switch can be set more or less permanently to ‘on’ due to a number of modern lifestyle factors.

Dr Mulgan, co-founder and CEO of LifeGuard, witnesses the impacts of the western lifestyle on the ageing process through his practice as a GP. A significant part of Dr Mulgan’s practice sees him providing care to residents in retirement homes.
