Abstract: This book presents recent developments and research discoveries in the areas of inflammation and related chronic diseases. The first part of the book provides an introduction to inflammation with special reference to aspects that can be modified by nutrition and physical activity interventions. The second part describes the effect of nutrition on inflammation, and how various nutrients (dietary fats, carbohydrates, alcohol, vitamin D, vitamin E, Vitamin C and B-complex vitamins, phytonutrients, and trace elements) affect inflammatory processes. Part 3 summarizes the impact of physical activity, specifically resistance exercise and endurance exercise, on inflammatory mediators. The last part gives a comprehensive review of how nutrition and physical activity interventions can be used to modulate inflammation to prevent the development and progression of chronic diseases such as obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, stress, depressive disorders, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, ageing, bone diseases and eye diseases.
