Injury now, evidence: Delayed is the issue. Cells constantly making ; tearing down tissue structures. Term injury is often used to refer to a brief challenge which induces changes. As cells respond, some die, some live but do not recover well ; some more fully recover, under local + brain/autonomic control (as before birth, embryology). Evidence of all injuries is delayed; depends on what issues are being focused upon.
