What The Study Did: This study used a blood marker of inflammation to assess the association of inflammation in late adolescence with death among a group of apparently healthy men (born between 1952 and 1956) who had blood drawn for compulsory conscription in the Swedish Army (at ages 16 to 20) and who were observed up to age 57.
