Inflammation and Alzheimer's Disease

Inflammation and Alzheimer’s Disease

Inflammation is a very complex set of processes that are geared towards identifying, attacking and removing pathogens. In other words, the human body uses inflammation to rid itself of foreign invaders such as bacteria and viruses. These stimulate inflammation when they’re present in the brain or anywhere in the body where they shouldn’t be, and inflammatory response molecules move in that area to attack them.
