Inflammation is the underlying cause for many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, obesity, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and neurodegenerative diseases. However, a certain level of inflammation is considered by some to be a protective response, and can be important for healing; by the same token, low-grade, chronic inflammation leads to the development of insulin resistance, CVD, hyperlipidemia, and many other health risks. For instance, the typical Western diet is high in sugar and fat, and the ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids; this unfavorable tilt in the ratio can lead to chronic inflammatory responses, obesity, and thus disease. Different nutrients have different effects on inflammatory response, both positive and negative; thus, the disruption or restoration of metabolic processes seems to be mediated on some level by the nutrients we consume.
The objective of this proposed Special Issue on “Inflammation: An Ancient Battle. What Are the Roles of Nutrients?” is to publish selected papers detailing specific aspects of nutrition that could play a role in decreasing inflammation and inflammatory response. Particularly, papers (reviews and/or clinical or experimental studies) dealing with the role of specific nutrients and non‐nutritional substances present in food regarding chronic diseases that are caused by or associated with inflammation, both chronic and acute.
On this topic, you are invited to submit proposals for manuscripts that fit the objectives and the topics of this Special Issue.Dr. Bahram Arjmandi
