    ABSTRACTBackgroundChildhood obesity is increasing, with about one-third of children overweight or obese. Obesity is characterized by a state of chronic low-grade inflammation that is related to cardiometabolic comorbidities. Inflammatory monocytes, which are classified into 3 different groups-classical, intermediate, and nonclassical monocytes, with Toll-like receptor 4 expression indicating a proinflammatory state-underlie several obesity-associated morbidities.ObjectivesThis study aimed to assess the responses of monocyte populations to beverages of differing macronutrient composition in...
