Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


It is well-known that chronic low-grade inflammation is implicated in both physical and mental non-communicable diseases. Diet, a leading risk factor for non-communicable diseases, has been repeatedly shown to be related to inflammation, as well as various health outcomes, including mental and cognitive health. In the current editorial paper, we briefly summarise the current state of evidence and discuss the potential mediating role of inflammation between diet and mental/cognitive health and our perspective on challenges and future research directions in the domain of inflammation and diet, with a specific focus on mental and cognitive health.
