Obesity is one of the biggest generators of silent inflammation. Two-thirds of Americans are now overweight, this means that the epidemic of silent inflammation is also out of control.

They tend to have tight skin. They tend to have inflammation and tightness at the joints. They tend to have many other complications that affect every part of their body.
