Abstract Both epidemiological studies and intervention trials support an important role of diet in reducing the risk of a variety of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, and overall mortality. We discuss available evidence indicating that the generation of a pro-inflammatory milieu might be one mechanism through which unhealthy diets are linked to metabolic and cardiovascular diseases. In practical terms, fully understanding the link between diet and inflammation holds the premise to elucidate the mechanisms by which dietary patterns improve cardiovascular health.
