Are working overtime?

All of you who have a “cold” every now and again, pay attention to what I am writing in this blog.

The symptoms of a cold do not result directly from the destruction of cells by viruses, but from the body’s response to this destruction — specifically, the inflammation that accompanies the immune system’s attack on the virus.

Amazing isn’t it?

  1. Even more amazing when you understand the complexity of inflammation in the body, and the different techniques for treating it. Allergic reactions to wasp stings are an excellent example of the immune system working overtime in summer.
