Chronic Inflammation

a: Chronic inflammation ~
b: those repeated unproductive meetings

What: "Have you ever been in a meeting that was intended to resolve a problem but did just the opposite? We have all experienced those unproductive, frustrating meetings that seem to do more harm than good. Imagine if you had meetings like that every day, or even every week! Chronic inflammation is like those repeated unproductive meetings. Eventually those "meetings" become chaotic as rogue inflammatory cytokines (messenger molecules secreted by immune cells) take over."
