Diet, Inflammation, and Health introduces concepts of inflammation, the role of acute inflammatory responses in good health, and the association of chronic systemic inflammation with mental distress, cognitive decline, and chronic diseases, ranging from diabetes to cardiovascular diseases, stroke, and cancer. The book also describes the pathophysiology of inflammation and its effects on insulin insensitivity and blunted immune response to carcinogenesis. Researchers and allied health care professionals working in dietetics and medicine, as well as students studying related fields will benefit from this reference and its recommendations on areas where future research is needed.



  • Addresses the role of acute inflammatory responses in achieving and maintaining good health
  • Covers the association of chronic system inflammation with various conditions and diseases
  • Describes the effect of inflammation on mechanisms ranging from insulin insensitivity and immune response to carcinogenesis
