Systemic vs. Localized

Scientific aspects of Systemic vs. Localized examined here at Revere Health.

A localized disease is an infectious or neoplastic (benign or malignant tumor) process that originates in– and is confined to–one area of the body or organ system.  
A systemic illness is one that affects the entire body, rather than a single organ or body part. Many organs and tissues might be involved in the complex disease process.

Matters can be correctly analyzed via/from either of these aspects.

I want to say that just by looking at the article heading I can guess with 100% certainty who -- Tom, Kaivey, or Matt -- posted the article ;)
