Inflammation is the buzzword of the moment in health,  as more diseases are being linked to it, from depression to Alzheimer’s to heart disease.

So, what’s driving our natural immune response into overdrive and making us ill? There are plenty of causes, and they’re all around us, from the processed food we eat to the polluted air we breathe.

We look at how culture, lifestyle, inflammation and disease are linked, and what we can do to reclaim our health.
