Study: Chronic stress changes immune cell genes, leading to inflammation
from The Huffington Post
A new study provides a better understanding of why chronic stress leads to high levels of inflammation in the body. Researchers found that chronic stress changes gene activity of immune cells before they enter the bloodstream so that they're ready to fight infection or trauma — even when there is no infection or trauma to fight. This then leads to increased inflammation.
