Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We thank Dodge for highlighting the potential environmental factors that may impact food insecurity upstream of the mechanistic pathway between food insecurity and health. Our work demonstrated that food insecurity is associated with C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation associated with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and cardiovascular disease. In our exploratory study, we focused primarily on associations at the individual and household level between socioeconomic conditions and biological processes such as nutritional deficiencies, susceptibility to infection, and increased inflammation.
