So in medical circles (and beyond), inflammation is being talked about a lot, and is believed to be a cause / contributing factor to many diseases (CVD, cancer, diabetes etc.)

Pple talk about CRP markers, and it seems to be desirable to have these as low as possible. A lot of diets aim to reduce inflammation in the body by emphasising anti-inflammatory foods.

But, I know one or two sick people who have no inflammation in their body. How is this possible? Maybe a bit of inflammation could be a good thing sometimes?
