Carbohydrate nutrition and inflammatory disease mortality in older adults -- Buyken et al. 92 (3): 634 -- American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Carbohydrate nutrition and inflammatory disease mortality in older adults -- Buyken et al. 92 (3): 634 -- American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Background: Several studies suggest that carbohydrate nutrition is related to oxidative stress and inflammatory markers.

Objective: We examined whether dietary glycemic index (GI), dietary fiber, and carbohydrate-containing food groups were associated with the mortality attributable to noncardiovascular, noncancer inflammatory disease in an older Australian cohort.

Conclusion: These data provide new epidemiologic evidence of a potentially important link between GI and inflammatory disease mortality among older women.
