Food Insecurity, Telomere Length and the Potential Modifying Effects of Social Support in NHANES

CONCLUSION: Food insecurity is modestly associated with shorter TL. Contrary to our hypothesis, food insecurity had more deleterious effects on TL among participants with high social support than low social support. Results may indicate that the food insecure population is a higher needs population, and increased social support reflects these needs rather than providing protective effects.PMID:37734859 | DOI:10.1017/S1368980023002008
