JUST PUBLISHED Part 6: Mechanisms of Chronic Disease Development

Here we summarise the main ways damaged skin is thought to contribute to Chronic Diseases

Biodiversity loss on the skin has been linked to a weakened immune system, systemic inflammation, and the release of toxic chemicals into the bloodstream.

These are just a few of the many mechanisms of chronic disease development skin listed in our new published research. 

"...damaged skin can induce not just local but systemic inflammation, thought to be a key driver of diseases..."

"...such as stroke, cancer, chronic kidney disease, autoimmune and neurodegenerative conditions, ischemic heart disease..."

This adds to the mounting evidence that damaged skin plays a major role in the Chronic Disease Epidemic.

Therefore, should we be thinking much more about the damage we are doing to our skin?
