INFLAMMATION 3 CHRONIC INFLAMMATION AND SCARRING
Inflammation 3 Chronic Inflammation and Scarring,
(top) brain chronic inflammatory changes
(bottom) lung with spaces where air used to flow (arrowheads),scar tissue (arrows) and collections of white cells (star)
Lung, Brain, Heart and Placenta.
If the inflammation is bad enough or frequent enough the white cells and their messages can “reach the parts other beers cannot reach”, switch on their cousins in the brain, heart ( where lung blood reaches first) and womb. Probably lots of other places that have not been studied yet as well.
The wound healing part of inflammation takes place, and microscopic scarring, like any scars you have that you can see on your skin, but inside.
