(although IL-6 can be anti-inflammatory during exercise) this is what this study has in brackets. Inflammation is a protection mechanism of body. Inflammation is a process by which the body’s white blood cells and substances they produce protect us from infection with foreign organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. if we ecxercise this comes on and produces an anti-inflammatory affect. hence the inflammatory affect is bad?? are we stating execs is bad or IL6 activation si bad. Th truth is both may have their affects and it has impend up a pathway and it is too long to see if this pathway can give a new drug to the society. but this surely at this stage does not mean that red wine is the spirit of GOD. breast cancer and red meat are directly linked for over many years. why not have grapes instead?
