The world’s older population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate and are prone to chronic inflammation and associated diseases. It can hardly be said that that past years have explained the causes of chronic inflammation and related aging-associated diseases, e.g., cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, cataracts, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and Alzheimer's disease and others. Epigenetic factors, DNA methylation, noncoding RNA and histone modification are mediators of inflammation and chronic inflammatory disease. Intriguingly, epigenetics elements are influenced by environmental and nutritional factors. The aim of this special issue is to update the latest information related to epigenetics and environmental-nutritional factors related to chronic inflammation and associated elderly diseases.
