ELIF: How does the body figure out that cells are being damaged?


I can’t come up on my own with a way that the body can sense damage to cells it is not connected to.

In: Biology

Which cells in your body are you not connected to?

Because when cells are damaged they release certain signalling chemicals that can be detected by nerves. Additionally in case of complete cell rupture, surrounding cells have ‘detectors’ that sense things in the space between the cells that shouldn’t be there.
