Bad Moods Can Increase Inflammation

Jennifer Graham-Engeland et al. from┬áPennsylvania State University have recently found a link between negative moods and inflammation. The main author stated that, “Because affect is modifiable, we are excited about these findings and hope that they will spur additional research to understand the connection between affect and inflammation, which in turn may promote novel psychosocial interventions that promote health broadly and help break a cycle that can lead to chronic inflammation, disability, and disease.”
