Many people suffer from a chronic inflammation. Approximately 200 out of 100,000 people in the western world suffer from chronic inflammatory bowel diseases alone. What triggers this inflammation? Does the immune system of the affected people just not "like" something commonplace, or perhaps like it too much? In this presentation I would like to share with the audience how different the "tastes" of the immune system can be. Although this variation has added evolutionary benefits, in individuals it can give rise to a chronic inflammation. Which specific substance triggers chronic inflammation in individuals is still unclear in most cases. Hopefully, through persistent research, this will soon change for more and more diseases, so that the affected patients can look forward to a specific treatment.
