Title: Three common assumptions about inflammation and aging that are probably wrong Abstract: Chronic inflammation is implicated in many diseases of aging, and it is a potentially important mechanism linking environments and health over the life course. But this understanding is based almost exclusively on research in affluent industrialized populations, which are epidemiologically and ecologically unique in comparison with most populations globally, and historically. A comparative, life course approach challenges key assumptions of the chronic inflammation paradigm, and points toward promising directions for future research.
