A 39-year-old male asked:

From a cellular inflammation viewpoint and the theory on how it relates to cancer and not heart disease, what is considered a good/low crp blood level?

Doesn't work that wa: CRP is non-specific. It goes up with any form of inflammation. There is no level that is specific for either cancer or heart disease. It just doesn't work that way. If you find that dissatisfying, reflect on this: it's not a very good test.
