Chronic Inflammation may increase the risk of breast cancer recurrence. These insights are fostering new anti-inflammatory therapeutic approaches to cancer development. Stress, lack of exercise, genetic disposition, and exposure to toxins can all contribute to such chronic inflammation, but dietary choices play a big role as well. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing disease risks such as cancer progression.
