Researchers at UC San Francisco announced this week that age-damaged skin in older adults may be contributing to a wide range of chronic, age-related conditions that include heart disease and Alzheimers disease.
Heres what the dermatological researchers said they learned from their work with the San Francisco Veterans Administration Health System: As aging skin begins to break down, the immune system releases small proteins known as cytokines to signal that theres inflammation in damaged areas of the skin. These tiny inflammatory cytokines can leak into the bodys circulation system, and if there are enough of them, they trigger body-wide inflammation. That triggers so called inflamm-aging among older adults.
At the end of the experiment, they once again measured cytokine levels in all subjects, Man said, and the seniors who used the skin cream saw dramatic reductions in three cytokines that have been linked to age-related chronic diseases. The three were interleukin-1 beta, interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor.
Among adults who used the skin cream, cytokine levels fell nearly to the level of people in their 30s. The study participants, ages 58 to 95, also lowered their skins acidity, improved hydration and repaired its permeability.

Post hoc ergo propter hoc...
Inflammation ages the skin and causes dementia.
Inflammation comes from constantly eating too much. We evolved in famine, and are at our healthiest when we are hungry a few times a day.
