Inflamed Response

Listen in pop-out player

Claudia Hammond investigates inflammation, the body's first line of defence against injury and infection. Researchers now realise that when it fails to switch off, the process is responsible for a host of unrelated medical conditions from cardiovascular disease to cancer.

Claudia examines how research into chronic inflammation is giving new insights into the relationship between mind and body and how interventions such as diet and exercise are proving effective in breaking the damage of an inflamed response.
