Healthcare providers use esoteric words to describe diseases and symptoms that have little or no meaning to the average patient. Healthcare systems are set up so that an oncologist (cancer doctor) and cardiologist (heart doctor) are often in completely separate wings of the hospital with minimal communication. Healthcare research uses complicated mathematical modeling and bench science techniques that are inaccessible to consumers. Dr. Johnson addresses these issues head on in his book, Understanding Microinflammation: The Common Link Between Aging, Cancer, and Coronary Disease, by connecting the dots in a user-friendly text.

Summarizing the existing literature, Dr. Johnson demonstrates how microinflammation is a shared process on a cellular level in our bodies between so many chronic diseases and aging. He describes how microinflammation leads to untimely disease, adverse health outcomes, and death. Moreover, he empowers both patients and practitioners alike to take ownership of health and employ proven preventive therapies.
