Inflammation, which we have all heard is a root cause of many diseases and dysfunctions in our bodies, has just linked two regularly UNLINKED killers: Cancer and Heart Disease.
In an exceptionally written article in The New York Times Magazine last week, readers were introduced to a patient who suffered from two deadly forms of cancer: lung and melanoma. When asked what he almost died from, this patient shared it was actually not these cancers, but a heart attack.
Throughout the rest of this thought-provoking article, the author, a Pulitzer Prize-winning cancer physician and scientist at Columbia University, Dr. Siddhartha Mukherjee, shared that the two top killers in our country, heart disease and cancer may now be linked. He carefully explains how.
